Facebook faces the second outage in the week; Company apologizes, services now backup

Facebook again faced outage days after one of the longest outages in Facebook history. The company confirmed its social media platform, Instagram, Messenger, and Workplace were impacted by the latest outage. However, the outage was not due to the same reason as that of the earlier outage in the week. 

“We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and we apologize for any inconvenience,” the Facebook tweet read.

Mark Zuckerberg’s tech empire affected two of these outages and whistleblowers blamed him and accused the company of the issue which occurred recently. According to reports, employees at various Facebook sites and offices were unable to access internal communication systems and tools to analyze the problem, and many were even locked out of the office areas as their access cards stopped working.

Some users were unable to load their Instagram feeds during the last outage, while others were not able to send messages on Facebook Messenger. Memes and jokes were flying over Twitter and the app Instagram thanked users for their patience and “for all the memes this week”.
