Facebook is still struggling to fix the worst problem in its history. Whatsapp and Facebook Messanger and Instagram were reported as down from 4 pm on Wednesday.
The problem was fixed on Instagram this morning Thursday but the Facebook app is still down for some users. Instagram users could not refresh feeds or post new material. While Facebook messenger desktop version would not load.
A Facebook workplace which is used by businesses to communicate internally was also affected. Facebook confirmed the partial outrage from users, but it did not provide an update.
Hackers could use computer networks they control to send a large number of requests for information from websites. Therefore servers that host them cannot handle the traffic and the sites become unreachable.It is believed Facebook have not confirmed the source of the problem yet.
