After being down for several hours yesterday and causing massive disruptions worldwide, Facebook is finally back up and running and its founder Mark Zuckerberg has issued an apology to its over 3.5 billion users worldwide.
According to the BBC news, the Issue was caused by an internal technical issue which saw major platforms such as Instagram, Whatsapp and Messenger also affected.
The issue caused many persons worldwide including businesses to suffer losses as applications that required a Facebook login were also down, and seized many operations and customer communications.
According to Facebook, their platform was impacted due to a configuration change that went faulty and also had an impact on Employee passes, as well as apps and web applications necessary for operation.
It is reported that persons trying to access the building at the Facebook headquarters were also disabled from doing that but luckily for them and members of the social media platform worldwide, the issue was fixed after approximately 6 hours out, by a team who was able to correct the servers from a California Data centre.
Facebook itself is still trying to figure out what took place, to make their system safer and resistant to unfortunate outages such as this recent one. The outage was also said to have impacted Mark Zuckerberg heavily on a financial level.
Where personal data is concerned the big tech company has stated that there was no known situation where there were compromises to such information.
