Like yesterday night’s incident that left thousands unable to access their Facebook accounts for a period of 40 minutes as from around 8.00pm. This wasn’t the case then but with this overhaul of users, the system might be prone to some sort of failure though it shouldn’t be frequent.

Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg and his team have apologized for last night’s incident which stopped thousands from logging into their accounts.


We understand that running the world’s biggest social network isn’t easy but Facebook should work a way out. This is the third time Facebook is experiencing outages in less than a month.

It was down for about 40 minutes . It’s the third time in less than a month that service has been lost .

“We apologize to those who have been inconvenienced,” said a Facebook spokesperson.

The Cause
