Facebook attributed the failure of the router to work for about 6 hours

Facebook and its WhatsApp and Instagram apps stopped working for about 6 hours.


Late Monday, Facebook blamed a major outage on its platform on configuration changes made to routers that coordinate network traffic between its data centers.

“This disruption in network traffic had a massive impact on the way our data centers communicate, bringing our services to a halt,” Facebook’s vice president of infrastructure, Santosh Janardhan, said in a post.
