If you are wondering why your Facebook was not working on 4 October, it was due to a technical snag.

Facebook in a blog post has apologized for the inconvenience caused to thousands of its users. Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram outages were due to configuration changes made on the company’s routers causing the crash. The outage affected the social giant’s internal tools resulting in a delay in diagnosing the issue.

According to Santosh Janardhan, VP, Infrastructure at Facebook, “Our engineering team has learned that configuration changes on the backbone routers that coordinate network traffic between our data centers caused issues that interrupted this communication. This disruption to network traffic had a cascading effect on the way our data centers communicate, bringing our services to a halt.”

Facebook service remained down for nearly 6 hours, it was the worst Facebook outage since 2019, though back then the outage lasted for nearly 24hours.

Facebook is also working on knowing information about what happened. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook posted an apology on Facebook the outage in a facebook post
