As expected during these outages, frustrated users took to Twitter to vent their dissatisfaction and concern that they may have to actually talk to their family members during Thanksgiving dinner.

Users reported outages across both Facebook and Instagram. Both are owned by the same company. However, WhatsApp appeared to be unaffected by the issue as yet.

All three apps share much of the same underlying infrastructure which can often create a cascade effect when a server goes down.

Meanwhile, Facebook has restored service and released in a statement:

Earlier today, people may have experienced trouble accessing Facebook’s family of apps. The issue has since been resolved, we are back to 100 percent for everyone and we’re sorry for any inconvenience.”

Facebook blamed “an issue in one of our central software systems.” [RT]

  1. Would like to see Facebook Down Permanently or as it’s otherwise known as Fakebook, Fuckedbook or Faces of Deathbook.

  2. I know that ‘ALMOST’ NO ONE will see this and even fewer will even go to my website. (But here goes anyway). I have been given a multitude of dreams and visions about the End of Days. I have seen some terrible things but I have seen some beautiful and amazing things such as my Raoture dream. And in that dream Jesus held me in his arms and I looked into the eyes of God. I have written books that are on Amazon, been on the radio, built a website, facebook, youtube videos and much more. I do not know why, I am the least likely person for this calling as I am a 70 year old disabled, Vietnam era veteran, but never-the-less I HAD A VERY HARD CALLING BY GOD FOR A WORK IN THESE LAST DAYS.
