A widespread outage of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp

Facebook Platform – Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp down as the team facing Networking issues.

A widespread outage is crippling Facebook’s sites and apps and its employee systems like phones and badges. The cause of the issue is unclear.

Inside Facebook, workers scrambled as internal systems went down. An internal memo said Facebook’s Global Security Operations center “determined it to be a HIGH risk to the People, MODERATE risk to Assets and a HIGH risk to the Reputation of Facebook.”

The memo described an outage “affecting all Facebook internal systems and tools,” including security systems, calendar and scheduling tools. Employees said they had trouble making calls from work-issued cellphones and receiving email from outside Facebook.

The outage comes as Facebook is already under scrutiny after a whistle-blower, Frances Haugen, came forward with documents that expose how much the company knew about the harms it was causing. Haugen is scheduled to testify before Congress on Tuesday.
