Facebook and linked Social Media platforms go down on Sunday
For the second time in a month, Facebook was not loading for millions of users in the northeastern US, Europe and parts of Asia on Sunday.
Downdetector.com, a website that monitors site outages, shows the social media giant went down at 12:30 p.m. CEST (1030 UTC) in much of the world.
At one point, the site registered more than 14,000 outage reports from users, which is believed to represent just a fraction of those affected, DW reports.
The website also showed that Whatsapp and Instagram — both owned by Facebook — also experienced severe outages around the same time. Last month, the social media giant experienced one of its longest ever outages, when millions of users around the globe faced trouble accessing the site, along with Instagram and Whatsapp for more than 24 hours.
