Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of technology companies, apologized for the disruption to Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram services and noted online services were returning on Tuesday.
“Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger are now back online,” Zuckerberg said in a Facebook post.
“Sorry for the inconvenience today – I know how much you rely on our services to stay in touch with the people you care about,” he said.
On Twitter early Tuesday morning, WhatsApp said: “Sorry for not being able to use WhatsApp today. We are slowly and carefully starting to work on WhatsApp again. Thank you so much for your patience. We will continue to update you when we have more information to share.”
Under the corporate umbrella of Facebook, users began to report that Instagram, WhatsApp and other services are now accessible as usual.
Earlier, the DownDetector, a site that monitors crash reports across the Internet, said the Facebook service crash was the largest ever.
The company said in a statement on Monday that “the biggest interruption we have seen in Downtector with more than 10.6 million problem reports from around the world.”
The U.S. led the list with more than 1.7 million service disruption reports, followed by Germany with 1.3 million and the Netherlands with 9,15,000.
Monday’s crash under the Facebook corporate umbrella, including Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger, made many services inaccessible.
Meanwhile, Telegram said its messenger users on Twitter may be having trouble loading chats and receiving notifications amid large-scale crashes on Facebook.
The company apologizes for the inconvenience.
