Instagram, Facebook outage for a second time in a week
Instagram went down for a lot of users on Friday evening, Facebook Messenger was affected too. The outage took place for the second time in a week. However, this outage was not as severe as the global outage that affected three major social media apps including WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram. It took Facebook six hours to resume the services. But this Instagram outage was comparatively short-lived and Facebook was able to bring back the app to life rather quickly.
Facebook acknowledged the issue on Twitter and apologised to users about the second outage in a week.
