We fixed the problem as quickly as possible for everyone who was affected and we still apologize for any inconvenience,” a spokesperson for Meta explained. . In conjunction with the first reports, also made on the Downdetector.com website, which collects problems with social platforms and online services, the hashtag #FacebookDown on Twitter has become trendy. “We know that some people are having problems with their Facebook Feed.
