Facebook struggles to deal with epic outage

"As a result, many people had difficulty accessing our apps and services". There were still sporadic problems Thursday morning.

The platform experienced one of its greatest outage in history Wednesday when users on the east and west coast and the southeast, as well as Europe, reported issues with uploading photos or posts or the inability to log into the site at all.

However, the social media platform did not elaborate on what kind of server configuration change they went through. "We've now resolved the issues and our systems are recovering", Facebook wrote from its official Twitter account on Thursday.

"We're very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate everyone's patience", Facebook said. Facebook product director Rob Leathern said on Twitter that people were also unable to access the social network's ad interfaces, which may exacerbate any lost revenue from the outage.

However, the latest Facebook service outage shows the issues that arise when attempting to consolidate a number of online services and apps together.

Facebook is back at full speed a day after its biggest outage blackout ever.

The social network's handling of user data has been a flashpoint for controversy since it admitted past year that Cambridge Analytica, a political consultancy which did work for Donald Trump's 2016 election campaign, used an app that may have hijacked the private details of 87 million users.

Facebook has maintained that it shared limited amounts of user data with smartphone makers and other outside partners to enable its services to work well on devices or with applications. These issues arose just a short while after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced plans to unite all of Facebook's services closer together in a more cohesive user experience.
