Users complained on Twitter that they could not access or have limited access to Facebook and Instagram.


Facebook also indicated that the failure was not related to a “DDoS” type cyber attack, as Distributed Denial of Service Attacks are known to overload servers with a high demand for connections.


According to the web site, problems were most noticeable in North America and Europe, but users in other regions also reported the flaw.



The social network, with 2.3 billion active users, reported a notable November failure attributed to a “server problem,” and one in September attributed to “network problems.”


WhatsApp also presents problems, with 81% of complaints related to sending messages. The highest concentration, according to DownDetector, occurs in Buenos Aires, Uruguay, Mexico, and part of Europe.


The company issued a statement on Twitter, stating that “we are aware that  some people are having problems accessing the family of Facebook applications, we are working to solve the problem as soon as possible,” and discards try a DDoS attack
