Friday Focus: Social Media Shutdown

If you are like us and your life revolves around social media you may have noticed that earlier this week Facebook and Instagram were not working. Can you believe the world didn’t end?! It was kind of nice to have a break but it was also stressful!

They blamed a ‘server configuration change’ for their longest outage EVER!

Facebook stated “Yesterday, we made a server configuration change that triggered a cascading series of issues,” said a Facebook spokesperson. “As a result, many people had difficulty accessing our apps and services. We have resolved the issues, and our systems have been recovering over the last few hours. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and we appreciate everyone’s patience.”
