Facebook Explains What Caused The Outage On Wednesday

Facebook blamed a massive outage that stretched into yesterday morning on a server configuration change.  The world’s largest social network said it has resolved the issue, which affected millions of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp users starting Wednesday.   “We made a server configuration change that triggered a cascading series of issues. As a result, many people had difficulty accessing our apps and services,” the social media giant said in a statement. “Our systems have been recovering over the last few hours.”  Facebook’s stock dropped nearly 2 percent after a 17-hour partial outage made the world’s largest social network inaccessible to users across the globe.
