Washington [US]: Facebook has said that the disruption of its operation was caused by configuration changes on backbone routers.
Facebook, in a statement, said its service is now back online.
"Our engineering teams have learned that configuration changes on the backbone routers that coordinate network traffic between our data centers caused issues that interrupted this communication. This disruption to network traffic had a cascading effect on the way our data centers communicate, bringing our services to a halt," the engineers said in a statement on Facebook's website.
We’re coming back online! Thank you all for your patience and we sincerely apologize to everyone affected by the outage. https://t.co/0ivNTHJ9wd— Facebook App (@facebookapp) October 4, 2021
