Facebook Blames'Server Configuration Change for Massive Outage

We've asked Facebook how it intends to resolve its issues with angry advertisers, but did not receive an immediate reply.

In a tweet about 24 hours after the problems began, Facebook apologized and thanked people for their patience.

The outage appeared to be abating early Thursday.

In any case, a contact within Telegram confirmed to TechCrunch's colleagues what was already quite obvious: the merit of this sudden growth is the aforementioned problems ("These outages always drive new users"), but is partly attributed to the will of a growing number of users to distance themselves from Facebook.

"We're aware that some people are now having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps".

In November, Facebook had a brief 40-minute outage.

Similarly, there are better controls to keep tabs on what files (i.e. photos, videos, audio, etc.) apps are requesting access to. These apps collectively had been installed over 150 million times, and Google has since removed the titles from the Play Store.

Instagram appears to be back up Thursday morning while its parent company, Facebook, goes into day two of issues with the social media platform. The social network has since addressed the issue and pinpointed the cause of it.

The New York Times reported late Wednesday that USA prosecutors had launched a criminal investigation into the social network's practice of sharing users' data with companies without letting them know.

A grand jury in NY has subpoenaed information from at least two major smartphone makers about such arrangements with Facebook, according to the Times. Back in November previous year, the social media platform also suffered from issues as well.

"As we've said before, we are cooperating with investigators and take those probes seriously".

'We've provided public testimony, answered questions and pledged that we will continue to do so, ' the spokesman said.

Earlier this morning, Pavel Durov, the eccentric founder of Telegram posted a message to his account celebrating the flood of new users, taking the opportunity to say his service has "true privacy and unlimited space for everyone".
