Jakarta, CNN Indonesia –
Facebook Inc. confirmed on Friday (8/10) that some users are having trouble accessing their apps and services again. This comes days after the social media giant had a six-hour downtime, caused by an error during routine maintenance on its data center network.
As a result of the difficulties, some users could not upload their Instagram feeds and others could not send messages on Facebook Messenger.
“We are aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We are working to get things back to normal as soon as possible and we apologize for the inconvenience,” Facebook said on its official Twitter account.
While responding to the interruption, users took to Twitter to share a meme about the second Instagram crash this week.
Web monitoring group Downdetector revealed that more than 36,000 people reported problems with photo-sharing platform Instagram on Friday. There have also been more than 800 reported issues with the Facebook messaging platform.
Downdetector only tracks interruptions by compiling status reports from a range of sources, including bugs submitted by users on their platform. The interruption may have affected more users.
Earlier, billions of users of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp had difficulty using the three platforms on Monday (4/10). Powerlessly, the problem occurred six hours later.
