Global Facebook, Instagram Outage Blamed On Glitch

According to this report, the reason Facebook and Instagram were down earlier was due to an internal error, not hackers.

Facebook said the disruption was caused by a technical change and wasn't a cyberattack. "This was not the result of a third party attack but instead occurred after we introduced a change that affected our configuration systems," its statement said. The temporary loss of service may be Facebook's biggest outage since Sept. 24, 2010, when it was down for about 2.5 hours.
