Reasons behind facebook services being inaccessible

Multiple social media platforms including Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, etc were down today’s morning in India.

“We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products,” Facebook wrote in a tweet sent Tuesday morning. “We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience.”

Facebook wrote in a tweet

• Instagram’s public relations team also tweeted about the outage, saying they were having “a bit of a hard time right now.”

• Mark Zuckerberg Loses $7 Billion in Net Worth as Facebook Stock Falls, as WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram have all gone down.

Reasons

While the cause of the outage hasn’t been announced, security experts said it may have been triggered by an internal mistake, Reuters reported. They added that sabotage by an insider was also a theoretical possibility, while an outside hack was thought to be less likely.

It is not stated when all these platforms will be restored. We will post any related updates to you quickly.

After long time of outage the services are now operational

Facebook tweeted

The researchers in different technical domains found that – The DNS (Domain Name System) routes that Facebook makes available to the networking world was withdrawn. So the traffic on the internet cant find the IP address of facebook and its services.

The Domain Name System is an integral element of how traffic on the internet is routed. DNS translates an address like “facebook.com” to an IP address like 123.45.67.890. If Facebook’s DNS records have disappeared, no one could find it and so the web browser shows an error as well as the apps cant load or post new content.
