Facebook Outage I Never Knew About Due to Hiatus

Facebook’s stock flails after major 14-hour outage

From CNN Business’ Jordan Valinsky

  • Facebook’s (FB) stock fell nearly 3% in early trading following a massive outage.
  • Some users weren’t able to access Facebook and other platforms owned by the company, including Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp for at least 14 hours.
  • It’s believed to be the social network’s biggest-ever interruption.
  • The disruption is likely to upset advertisers that spend large amounts of money to reach potential customers on Facebook platforms.
