Facebook is out there having a very good Twitter day but not a good Facebook and Instagram experience.
Yesterday, users of the Facebook family of apps including Facebook and Instagram had user experience difficulties as some could only view posts but can’t share some of their own.
Earlier, Facebook turned to Twitter to explain that it was “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 at the time, 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 couple of minutes ago, Facebook sent another tweet stating that “we’ve now resolved the issues and our systems are recovering.”
According to Facebook, yesterdays glitch was “as a result of a server configuration change” and that “many people had trouble accessing our apps and services. ”
Yesterday, as a result of a server configuration change, many people had trouble accessing our apps and services. We've now resolved the issues and our systems are recovering. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate everyone’s patience.

For those who are still experiencing some challenges, just give it a couple of hours and Facebook’s services will be fully online.
