Facebook and Instagram users cannot access to social network’s apps in various parts of the world Wednesday as a result of an outage of unsettled origin.
The California tech giant which has more than two billion users recognized the outage after users stated on Twitter, they could not access the social media platform or had limited functionality.
“We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps. We’re working to resolve the issue as soon as possible,” a Facebook statement told on Twitter.
A moment later, Facebook specified the outage was not related to an attack aimed at overwhelming the network.
“We’re focused on working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, but can confirm that the issue is not related to a DDoS attack,” Facebook replied, denoting to what is known as a dispersed denial of service cyber strike.
According to downdetector.com, outages were heftiest in North America and Europe, yet some users appeared to be affected in most other regions.
November of the previous year, a Facebook outage was ascribed to a server problem and a September 2018 outage was the result of “networking issues.”
