The world’s biggest social media platform Facebook has apologised to users after all social networks the company owns, which include Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp, crashed for a few hours on Monday 04 October 2021.
The company has since released a statement, apologising to their 2.89 billion subsribers:
We wanted to acknowledge the impact the outage has had on everyone who depends on accessing our apps and services every day. To the small businesses discovering new customers, groups bringing people together around shared interests, creators engaging with their communities, and families trying to connect: we’re sorry.
We’ve been working hard to restore access and are happy to report our apps and services are coming back online now. Thank you for bearing with us and continuing to be the best part of Facebook.
Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger are coming back online now. Sorry for the disruption today — I know how much you rely on our services to stay connected with the people you care about.
– Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO at Facebook.
