The big technology giant Facebook was unreachable on 04 October 2021 along with Instagram & WhatsApp. It was a global outage of service. In some regions, the internet was also get affected due to the incident.
According to some news reports and facebook’s statement, the problem occurred due to configuration changes to its routers. Even the employee and engineers of facebook were unable to access the server area for a few hours because the security system was also down at the center. Facebook’s internal system was also affected by the outage.
