Facebook Turned To Twitter To Explain That It’s World Wide Glitch Was Not Caused By “A Traffic Jam”

Yesterday, it seemed we had a near-apocalyptic experience on some of the Facebook-owned apps.

While subscribers could not post on some of the Facebook-owned apps such as Instagram and Facebook itself, the subscribers could, however, view posts already sent to the platform.

This problem was not a localized one as many subscribers across the world also reported experiencing similar challenges.

Now, Facebook has come out to acknowledge that it is indeed having a worldwide technical challenge.

In a statement on Twitter, which is not owned by Facebook, Facebook said “we’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps. We’re working to resolve the issue as soon as possible.”

Though they didn’t know what exactly was causing the technical glitch, Facebook maintained that it was not a DDoS attack.

“We’re focused on working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, but can confirm that the issue is not related to a DDoS attack,” the social media company said.

A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is a malicious attempt to disrupt normal traffic of a targeted server, service or network (Facebook) by overwhelming the target or its surrounding infrastructure with a flood of Internet traffic.
