Written by on October 4, 2021

Somewhere near 9:00 am Monday morning (PST), the social media giant Facebook went down. Users of Instagram and WHatsApp were also affected by the outage.

Facebook sent out a Tweet on Twitter, “We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing Facebook app. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience,” the Tweet said., in a tweet reported ‘Facebook employees reportedly can’t enter buildings to evaluate the Internet outage because their door access badges weren’t working.’

Two Facebook security team members told the New York Times, on the condition of anonymity that it was unlikely that a cyberattack caused the issues.”

Facebook stock tumbled as the outage continued losing nearly 5 1/2 percent of its value. The tumble leaves Mark Zuckerberg taking a $7billion loss.

Many in the tech world speculate the outage may have something to do with a Domain Name System (DNS) failure.

As of 3:00 pm (PST) some users were able to login with some difficulties with posting status updates.
