Accordingly Facebook Inc. suffered its third major outage this year, with users across the world unable to access the social network or its suite of services such as Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp. Facebook and Instagram were inaccessible on Sunday morning for several hours with both sites refusing to refresh, while messages were unable to be sent or received in Whatsapp or the Messenger app.

Downdetector, a site that tracks website outages, reported problems with Facebook starting as early as 6.30 am Sunday morning in New York (4 pm in India). The issues affected users in Asia, Europe and the U.S., according to the site. Facebook didn’t returned emails seeking comment on the outage. The social media networks were back up and running in New York by 9.30.a.m (7pm in India), but irate users turned to Twitter to vent during the blackout.



In late January, the Instagram app crashed, and Whatsapp users worldwide were also unable to send or receive messages. Last month, Facebook faced its most widespread and persistent system outage, with users unable to access the social network for more than 12 hours.
