Facebook struggles into day two of global outage

Facebook struggles into day two of global outage

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.

Facebook estimates that 2.7 billion people use its apps, with more than 2 billion users posting and messaging on its services every day.

Police in Bothell, Washington had to make a similar plea on their Twitter account.

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.

"We made a server configuration change that triggered a cascading series of issues", Facebook says in a story with USA Today.

The social network said on Thursday that changes to a server configuration were to blame. In November, Facebook had a brief 40-minute outage. "We've now resolved the issues and our systems are recovering".

Users flocked to Twitter to let the company know what they thought about the outage. Facebook's ad platform, Facebook Ad Manager, was also down.

While the outage continued, The New York Times reported that USA prosecutors had launched a criminal investigation into the social network's practice of sharing users' data with companies without letting them know. The federal investigation is the latest bad news coming from the company's data privacy scandals.

According to the report, a grand jury in NY has subpoenaed information from at least two major smartphone makers about such arrangements with Facebook.

A Facebook spokesperson told CNN Business that despite some online rumors, the issue was not caused by a hack or an attack, adding that the company was focused on resolving the issue and hoped to eventually share details about what caused the problem. And Spotify and Netflix reportedly were allowed to see user private message information.
