“We understand that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products,” a company spokesperson said. “We are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience.”

In 2019, a similar outage lasted for about an hour. Facebook said the outage was due to a technical issue. Major websites can also sometimes crash if content delivery networks or CDNs are not connected to the Internet. It happened in June, when one of the CDNs, Fastly, went down due to technical issues. This caused major websites including Amazon, Reddit, and The New York Times to crash.
