The American social networking site, Facebook, announced, Friday evening, that it experienced a new outage within one week.
“We understand that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products, we are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and apologize for any inconvenience,” Facebook wrote on its Twitter account.
The latest Facebook outage comes just days after the company’s worst outage in years, when every Facebook-owned service (Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp) was down for more than 6 hours.
The company later attributed the problem to a “wrong configuration change” that interfered with its DNS servers.
The global outage that occurred last Monday resulted in a 5.5% decline in Facebook shares, after the services of the site, the photo and video application “Instagram” and the instant messaging application “WhatsApp” were disrupted.
Facebook’s stock fell to the level of $323.56, after a loss of $19.5.
