Facebook issues a first comment on the major outage
Facebook made a first comment on the global blackout that is currently unfolding. As we know, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp have stopped working and no one can connect to the site and application. An error message appears or nothing is displayed. Internet users wondered at the start of the outage if it was just their account that was causing the problem, but it is a major outage that affects a lot of people.
Facebook has decided to write to Internet users on Twitter to inform them. We can read in the tweet which is extremely shared and commented: " We are aware that some people have difficulty accessing our applications and products. We are trying to rectify the situation as quickly as possible and we apologize for any inconvenience. ».
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.
