Global glitch strike began on Monday evening on Facebook platforms, including WhatsApp and Instagram. Users have reported a glitch that prevents them from accessing networks, apps or websites. After midnight, Facebook and Instagram resumed operations, and around 02:00, the WhatsApp messaging app also returned to function, about six hours after it started.
"We apologize to anyone who could not use WhatsApp today," the company tweeted, "WhatsApp is starting to work slowly and carefully again. Thank you for your patience." Earlier it was written in a Facebook account: "To the huge community of people and businesses around the world who trust us - we are sorry." The technology giant has not provided an explanation for its longest collapse since 2008.

The Facebook glitch started around 6:30 p.m. At 20:00, global glitches were also reported on Twitter, Google, Amazon and cellular networks in the US. Of the former employee who leaked the company's documents to the Wall Street Journal and Congress.
A spokesman for the global Facebook company said last night via Twitter: "We are aware that some users are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We are addressing the issue to get back to normal as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience caused." No assessment was made as to the cause of the malfunction.
Various groups on the network have expressed speculation that this may be a cyber attack, which came in response to the exposure of Frances Haugen, a former Facebook employee, about the company's policy. However, two employees of Facebook's security team anonymously told the New York Times that this was not a reasonable scenario, as the technology behind the apps is not the same and hacking into one of them should not affect the others. Cyber ‚Äč‚Äčexperts told the Reuters news agency that it was probably a configuration error and that it was probably a human error, although the possibility that it was a deliberate injury to an employee could not be completely ruled out - perhaps due to the exposure of the flange.
Shira Frenkel, a New York Times technology reporter, tweeted last night: "I just spoke on the phone with someone who works on Facebook and he described how workers were unable to enter the buildings this morning to test the extent of the malfunction because their badges did not allow them to pass through the gate." The Times reported that Facebook's global security center had sent a memo stating that the fall of the Facebook network posed a "high risk to people, a medium risk to assets and a high risk to Facebook's reputation." The memo further stated that a group of Facebook employees had been called to the Facebook computer center in Santa Clara, California, to try to perform a "manual boot" to the company's servers. However, two employees in Facebook's technical department told the New York Times that it was unlikely that this was a cyber attack since the three affected applications were not interdependent and yet all three had a malfunction.
Yoram HaCohen, CEO of the Israeli Internet Association, which manages the IL space. And his DNS servers say: Between personal and business. "This mishap, whether it is the result of an attack or a human error, is a nightmare for anyone who runs an Internet service."
