As is Instagram and WhatsApp apparently.

Owned by Facebook too, aren’t they?

Yes. Apparently they remotely pushed a config change which took their BGP routes down and locked themselves out of the switches/routers. No technical staff at the datacentre because of the pandemic, but once staff arrived their security cards wouldn’t work :man_facepalming:

So glad I’m retired and out of that game, now :slight_smile:

What does half of this mean in layman’s terms, please?

A network engineer screwed up, basically, and took FB’s entire network down. It was done remotely so they couldn’t get back in to fix it.

Are they kidding?

I used phone and SMS to keep in touch, while WhatsApp offline.

My contact with the world does not revolve around their apps :joy::rofl:

Had I not had a technical interest in their issues it wouldn’t have affected me at all.
