Facebook announced Thursday that its services – including Instagram and WhatsApp – have been restored after the most severe outage in the social media giant’s history.

The company blamed server issues for the outage, which took about one day to resolve and affected a significant number of Facebook’s 2.3 billion monthly users around the world.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Yesterday, as a result of a server configuration change, many people had trouble accessing our apps and services,” Facebook tweeted on Thursday. “We’ve now resolved the issues and our systems are recovering.”

Instagram on Wednesday evening tweeted “we’re back” after an earlier post acknowledged it was aware of an “issue impacting people’s access to Instagram.”

    If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck….lame excuses on FB’s part. They are under scrutiny and are scrambling to bury evidence.

    I find in too coincidental that their “servers” happened to be down not long after allegations of tampering. They were just cleaning up any evidence.

    I don’t think so. They destroyed records they are under investigation for. There is a big investigation into Facebook’s sale of user data.
