Facebook appears to be facing another outage. According to downdetector, users reports are indicating a problem at Facebook. Rival Snapchat also appears to be down. We tried posting a story on both Facebook and Snapchat and were unable to do so.
Facebook has not had a great October so far. It faced one of its longest outages on Monday, October 4 which lasted nearly six hours. The outage impacted all of Facebook’s major apps, which included Instagram, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg later apologised for the issue and said this was caused due to a configuration change. Facebook then faced another outage on Friday when Instagram and Facebook app were not working for some users.
But it looks like Facebook is not alone in facing the set of problems. Rival Snapchat is also down with downdetector also showing that user reports are indicating a problem with the app as well. As we pointed out, we were unable to post a story to Snapchat either.
