A couple of days after Facebook and its associated apps were down globally, a repeat incident happened again, and just like the first time people took to Twitter to report, comment and share memes.
Facebook and other apps under the corporate umbrella including Whatsapp and Instagram experienced worldwide outages on Monday due to what the company’s engineers described as a disruption in operations caused by configuration changes on backbone routers.
The social media giant also via a tweet shared that the platform was aware of users’ reports of having trouble accessing their apps and working to restore the services on priority.
“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,” Facebook’s tweet read.
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.

Later on Facebook issued a statement announcing it had resolved the issue that caused the outage earlier in the day making it the second major accident this week.
“Sincere apologies to anyone who wasn’t able to access our products in the last couple of hours. We fixed the issue, and everything should be back to normal now,” Facebook said via Twitter on Friday.
