facebook: On Monday evening (4), facebook issued a statement saying that the six-hour hiatus from the group’s websites (Instagram, facebook and WhatsApp) were caused by “configuration changes in routers that coordinate network traffic”.
“Our engineering teams found that configuration changes to the backbone routers that coordinate network traffic between our data centers caused issues that disrupted communications,” the company’s official statement said. According to the note, user data has not been affected by the fall.
To TecMundo, the company apologized to all 3.5 billion affected users: “We know that billions of people and businesses around the world depend on our products and services to stay connected. Go online”.
In addition to Facebooks networks, other networks have also become unstable, including Telegram, TikTok, and Twitter. The latter reported that the high number of simultaneous accesses led to network problems.
Loss of $6 Billion in Six Hours
in the fall, facebook Co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is estimated to have lost about $6 billion in the six hours the networks were down. As a result, Zuckerberg lost the rank of 4th richest person in the world to Bill Gates, with $121.6 billion.
