Facebook recovering from global outage

In any case, a contact within Telegram confirmed to TechCrunch's colleagues what was already quite obvious: the merit of this sudden growth is the aforementioned problems ("These outages always drive new users"), but is partly attributed to the will of a growing number of users to distance themselves from Facebook. It's believed to be the biggest interruption ever suffered by the social network.

According to the website Downdetector, Facebook's outage spanned the globe, with reports of disruptions concentrated on the U.S. East Coast and in the United Kingdom. The platform experienced one of its greatest outage in history Wednesday when users on the east and west coast and the southeast, as well as Europe, reported issues with uploading photos or posts or the inability to log into the site at all.

The lengthy disruption is likely to upset advertisers that spend large amounts of money to reach potential customers on Facebook platforms. "We are 100 percent back up and running and apologize for any inconvenience", a Facebook spokesperson said.

"We're aware that some people are now having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps. We've now resolved the issues and our systems are recovering", the company said in a tweet.

Despite some early online rumors that the outages were the result of a distributed denial-of-service (DDos) attack - a type of hack in which attackers flood a company's network - Facebook said in another tweet that "the issue is not related to a DDoS attack".

Facebook's stock fell almost 3% in early morning trading on Thursday as Wall Street reacted to the outage. And if you haven't rushed to Twitter yet, we'll save you the trouble: yes, Facebook posting is down and Instagram is buggy.
