Bad week for Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook, Instagram and Messenger services were down Friday night, after four days of massive global blackouts on Monday. A little less than two hours later, Facebook announced that everything was back to normal, after a “configuration” issue, the company said The New York Times.
We are very sorry if you are unable to access our products within the last 2 hours. We know how much you depend on us to connect with each other. We’ve fixed the issue – thanks again for your patience this week.

“We understand that some people and businesses are finding it difficult to access Facebook products. We are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and apologize for any inconvenience,” the company apologized at 9:22 p.m. (Paris time).

As of Monday, all of the group’s services, from WhatsApp to Instagram, Messenger and Oculus, remained inaccessible for about seven hours. Facebook explained the next day that the outage was caused by an error by the group during routine operations on its main routers, which mistakenly disrupted the routes that route internet traffic to its data centers.
