Several Facebook employees in the US could not access office systems or conference rooms amid the global outage that affected several platforms, media reports said. Certain employees who came to evaluate the outage were locked out of buildings because their badges to access doors were not working. “It’s mayhem over here,” an Associated Press reporter quoted a source as saying.
Users reported issues with Facebook apps such as Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger, and Facebook itself on DownDetector, a website that tracks global outages and issues for websites and products.”We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience,” Facebook said in a Tweet.
