california. Social media company Facebook has apologized for the recent stalling of the platform. On Friday, for the second time in a week, Facebook’s services like Instagram, Messenger and Workplace were reported to be temporarily shut down. The company says that this time the problems faced by the users are responsible for the technical flaw in the computing platform. Earlier on Monday, the company’s services could be restored after being closed for about 6 hours.
The company said, ‘We apologize to those who are not able to use our products for the last few hours. We have sorted out the problem and everything should be back to normal now. DownDetector, a company that tracks outages (the time when users are unable to use a service), has reported that there has been an increase in the number of problems using Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp.
Some users were unable to work on Instagram feeds during the recent trouble. At the same time, other users were not able to send messages on Facebook Messenger. Now internet users once again turned to Twitter regarding this outage and shared memes about the problem for the second time in a week. According to Facebook, Instagram thanked users for remaining calm and for “all the memes this week”.
On Monday, crores of users informed that they are unable to use services like WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook. However, the company partially resolved this problem in about 6 hours. Experts believe that the wires of the problem were related to the Broader Gateway Protocol. According to the language, Facebook’s vice president (infrastructure) Santosh Janardhan said in a blog post that the services of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp were disrupted “not because of any malicious activity, but because of our own error”.
The problem started when engineers were doing day-to-day work on Facebook’s global network. In this network, computers, routers and software in centers located around the world are connected by fiber-optic cables.
