While the recent outage suffered by Facebook’s family of apps wasn’t as severe as it was last month, wherein the company’s services remained affected for a span of nine hours, it adds on to the string of major outages the company has suffered in the recent time.

Facebook’s family of apps consisting of Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram first suffered a major outage back in March this year. The outage had also affected Facebook’s other services, including Oculus VR too had been affected by the outage. At the some reports had suggested that Facebook’s services had been down owing to a DDoS attack. However, Facebook clarified that saying that users across the globe were experiencing issues owing to a system configuration change.

Then in July, the social media giant’s services faced another major outage. The issue on the three platforms started at around 7:30PM on July 3 and it lasted till 5:30AM on July 4 during which time over 14,000 users reported issues with Instagram, over 7,500 people reported issues with Facebook, while nearly 1,600 users reported issues with WhatsApp.

“During one of our routine maintenance operations, we triggered an issue that is making it difficult for some people to upload or send photos and videos,” Facebook had said in a statement explaining the cause behind yet another massive outage experienced by its users across the globe.

As far as the recent outage is concerned, it is not clear what prompted the latest round of outage on Facebook’s family of apps.
