FACE­BOOK AND IN­STA­GRAM SUF­FER OUT­AGES WED­NES­DAY

The Day - - FRONT PAGE -

New York — Face­book says it is aware of out­ages on its plat­forms in­clud­ing Face­book, Mes­sen­ger and In­sta­gram and was work­ing to re­solve the is­sue.

Ac­cord­ing to Face­book’s sta­tus page, the out­ages started about 11 a.m. EDT on Wed­nes­day. That page, which calls the prob­lem a “par­tial out­age,” states that Face­book has ex­pe­ri­enced “in­creased er­ror rates” since that time.

Face­book did not say what was caus­ing the out­ages.

Via its Twit­ter ac­count, Face­book said the out­age was not due to a “dis­trib­uted de­nial of ser­vice” or DDoS at­tack, a type of at­tack that hack­ers use to in­ter­rupt ser­vice to a site.
