Facebook Experiences An Hour-Long Outage

Facebook went down earlier today (Jan. 27) and users unable to login or access thier profiles and news feeds.

The outage, which also made Instagram unavailable, affected users in United States, Asia, the UK and Australia and lasted for an hour. The social media giant released a statement to USA Today saying that the glitch was their fault and was not a result of any third party attack.

“Earlier today many people had trouble accessing Facebook and Instagram. This was not the result of a third party attack but instead occurred after we introduced a change that affected our configuration systems. We moved quickly to fix the problem, and both services are back to 100% for everyone.”

Facebook and Instagram are back up and running.
