By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Some are seeing the return of Facebook and its family of apps – Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Oculus VR, after more than seven hours of being offline in a massive worldwide outage, disrupting the digital lives of billions of its users. In effect, while websites and apps have gone down for even longer, today’s disconnection of Facebook and sister companies’ services is considered the longest worldwide outage.

All these services suddenly went offline this morning and people started signing up on Telegram and Signal, alternatives to WhatsApp. The company did not disclose the cause of the outage.

The problem started just before ten this morning and was not rectified by Facebook until about 3:30 on Monday afternoon. But not all users are back online as yet.

A Facebook spokesman confirmed that the services were slowly coming back online, but cautioned that it would take some time for the services to stabilize.

“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 wrote on Twitter this morning.

Facebook engineers were sent to the data centers in the United States to fix the problem.

Apart from reaching out for alternatives like Telegram and Signal, people used their email more today to communicate with each other, including Facebook employees. Facebook employees also were cut off from email, internal communication tools, and physical access to building sites because of the outage.

Fox Business informed that DownDetector reported that users of T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T, Google, Twitter, TikTok, Zoom, and Amazon Web Services reported outages as well.
