Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp Down Worldwide After DNS Records Vanish; Employees Badges Reportedly Not Working

Illustrative Image

Originally published on ZeroHedge.

Update (1507ET): Facebook appears to have more than DNS issues, as NYT’s Sheera Frenkel reports:

“Was just on phone with someone who works for FB who described employees unable to enter buildings this morning to begin to evaluate extent of outage because their badges weren’t working to access doors.” 

This may suggest Facebook’s internal systems are down. DNS issues that affect the website don’t hinder employees from entering buildings.

Update (1448ET): It’s been several hours, and Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, and Facebook Messenger, are still down. According to internet researchers, Facebook appears to be dealing with a Domain Name System (DNS) issue.

NBC News’ Kevin Collier called the DNS issues at Facebook “really bad.”

There’s even a ripple effect across the internet.

Meanwhile, everyone on Twitter…

Downdector reports that Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, and Facebook Messenger are experiencing issues and /or outages worldwide. The outage comes just before a Facebook whistleblower is set to testify before Congress on Tuesday.

Users began to report issues with the social media platform around 1120 ET.

Facebook users report the website won’t load with an error message that reads:

“Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on it and we’ll get it fixed as soon as we can.”

Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone acknowledged on Twitter that “some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products.”

The timing of the widespread outages comes as a Facebook whistleblower will be testifying before Congress on Tuesday. The whistleblower appeared on “60 Minutes” Sunday, detailing the tech company’s mission to put profit before doing “what was good for the public,” including clamping down on hate speech.

Shares of the tech company slid 6% by early afternoon, tumbling not just on the whistleblower but also the global outage.

Facebook users took to Twitter to complain about the outages:

… and there’s this:

Twitter user Chad Loder tweeted: “someone nuked the DNS A and AAA records for Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp.”

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey responds to Loder’s tweet and asks “how much?”

Let the conspiracy theorists run wild with today’s events:

“Facebook is down because it was trending for a whistleblower testifying before congress today. Now they are trending for being down. Clever PR stunt,” said one Twitter user

On the bright side, with a broad part of social media platforms down today, maybe people will get back to work and boost global productivity since the outage is broad.

No offense SF but this is now old news (hours). My question is simple. Did it occur to anyone that the outage was deliberately created for a select few so that they can short fb stock (leveraged) and make hundreds of millions if not billions of $$$?

Ivanus59

Old news? Well it wouldn’t be much news if it was down for 15 minutes now would it?
The point that it’s an outage for like 6+ hours is what makes it worthy of news. If it was worded “FACEBOOK DOWN 5 MINUTES AGO!” I wouldn’t even click on it.

block

Problems in the last 8 hours makes it old news. I am arguing semantics with another idiot? Direct your limited attention to the alleged intent of such incidents, not your love of the time clock.

The fact that it needs to be spelled out to you shows you are another stooge imbecile misdirecting my exact point.

A response is trolling?

You are an imbecile.

Your comments are nonsensical distractions.

The average american and global “netizen” should have learned years ago that US corporate social media is complete garbage. Change your OS from perverted (epsteins/maxwells relative, gates) to Linux OS.

Notice the date of the following article. gates was with epstein for decades. What is unknown is he is likely related to the pervert maxwell.

https://www.rt.com/news/536578-facebook-data-hackers-sale/

As the last articles informs, 1.5 billions users data may be at risk. I tried to warn for many years, stay away from zionist run garbage like fb, google, u#tuub etc.

I was thinking of doing that in the near future. Now, is it compatible with Windows software? I’ve been using Windows 10 with Classic Shell, and I’m worried about my older games and programs. They’re already showing their age.

There’s Wine, which allows certain Windows programs to run on Linux. Maybe that’ll help?

Runs alongside windoze in bootloader. Boot up your PC, select your OS, simple. You can also test many Linux distros in “Live” mode, memory/hd, without having to install.

Try it out, might work for you. :)

I thought there are NO really fantastic GOOD News anymore.

There is great news at the end of a joint…

Hope this is just the beginning in a very long line of cyber attacks against that malicious virus known as Zuckerberg. Many of you won’t believe me, but for weeks I’ve been “sensing” to get off FB entirely (precognition?) in that it won’t have much use anymore and quite honestly, my instinctive senses are never ever wrong.

block

No offense but the fact that you have been a registered user of fb shows a limited intellect.

I could care less about a troll’s opinion, blockhead!!

Something in my backbone tells me your instinctive senses re facebook have always been wrong, sorry.

Polite, nice work. I would have simply said “what a fkn brainwashed idiot going into meltdown within the first hour”. Good instincts. 👍

Maybe God is real after all. It seems we were just delivered a miracle.

Cuckersperg’s Faceberg experienced a slight drop in data-mining today; but fear not, access has been restored for billions of Feceberg users so that the NSA/FBI/CIA data-milking operation may continue.

“On the bright side, with a broad part of social media platforms down today, maybe people will get back to work and boost global productivity since the outage is broad.”

Yep. Not that I care as I’ve never used such services.

George Kovachev

A shortwhile ago someone predicted that the next big assault on our liberties shall be pre-empted by global cyberattacks on Internet.

I wonder – may be we just observed the first trial run.

Tommy Jensen

It could be the end of our humanity as we know it. If Faecebook dont get up running again we have lost the battle for our planet’s future.
Our families, friends, admirers, our ability to take down our personal enemies, clima change, peace in our time, all lost!
The start of endless IT scandals all over the world that will pour humanity down the drain.

😂 If only we were so lucky…

Try to take it up with peppe the clown, he should be in “recovery” mode after the “traumatic” events of yesterday.

ossie

“clamping down on hate speech”
that should be free speech, the cunts are censoring all, and everyone they don’t “agree” to
