Hey, did you miss Facebook yesterday? you’re not alone The company faced widespread outages yesterday. Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp were all down for a time yesterday worldwide. Facebook says a server configuration change was to blame for the outages. It was the worst outage in the company’s history. Problems started spreading yesterday around 11 a.m. EDT. If you’re like me a box popped up when I logged on telling there was no service. Some people could log on but their news feeds were empty or they could not post updates. Updates were visible from friends sometimes, but you could not comment or like them. Profiles on Instagram would not load and WhatsApp users reported could not send messages.
Twitter, a Facebook rival, was up and #FacebookDown was trending. The only things I missed was I couldn’t share my daily blog with you and I couldn’t play my daily Sudoku game.
