Facebook, the popular social networking site is not working for a second time in a week. Hundreds of Facebook users were unable to load the site on desktop computers as they were left confronted with an error. The people were also unable to share links or post articles on the California-based site.
Independent website Down Detector showed some users reporting issues with the Facebook website throughout the UK and parts of mainland Europe, Asia and the USA. Users are reporting issues with the social network website every minute, Down Detector data has revealed.
Earlier this week, Facebook was hit by a major outage that left fans of the social site unable to access their own pages. It’s uncertain what triggered the issue although a number of unconfirmed reports suggested that Facebook suffered a “catastrophic” problem.
Others have claimed that this is the consequence of a DDoS, or Distributed Denial of Service attack. What is clear is that it appeared to be one of the biggest outages at Facebook in 2017.
