Facebook says faulty configuration change was the root cause of the 6-hour outage



Facebook and its WhatsApp and Instagram apps stopped working for about 6 hours.


Facebook Inc on Monday cited faulty configuration changes in its routers as the root cause of a nearly six-hour outage that prevented the company’s 3.5 billion users from accessing its social media and messaging services.

“Our engineering teams have learned that configuration changes on the backbone routers that coordinate network traffic between our data centers cause issues that disrupt this communication,” Facebook said.
