Facebook had an outage of over 24 hours last month, which is its longest ever.
On Sunday morning, many people were forced to do what they dread most - interact with other people - in real life!
However, Facebook did not specify the cause or scope of the outages.
Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are down. As the New York Times noted, even the platform's bug reporting system became inaccessible, a black eye for a company that (at least in theory) is never supposed to go down.
"Earlier today, some people may have experienced trouble connecting to the family of apps. The issue has since been resolved; we're sorry for any inconvenience", the apology email read.
"Confirmed: Analysis of global network data shows Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger down globally for an estimated 60 percent of users; incident ongoing #FacebookDown", cybersecurity firm NetBlock.org tweeted. Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram, have started working at around 9AM ET. Besides, according to multiple tech pundits, the number of server downfall had been increasing following a merger of Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram on February, although the area of problem remained unidentified.
Downdetector.com, a site that monitors site outages, reveals Facebook was down since 6:30 a.m. EST in much of the world, with tens of thousands of reported outages concentrated from the northeast U.S., Europe and the Philippines.
