Facebook employees unable to enter buildings amid major social media outage
Various platforms owned by Facebook, including Instagram and WhatsApp, experienced major outages on Monday. As employees of the social media conglomerate attempted to access buildings to fix the outage, their digital badges failed to work.
“We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products,” said Andy Stone, a spokesperson for Facebook. “We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience.”
Some workers reported issues with making calls on work cell phones and receiving emails.
The outage comes a day after whistleblower Frances Haugen testified against Facebook, her former employer.
