'Pay With Facebook' Option Appears for Some Facebook Users

As its systems were recovering from the outage, the social networking giant apologized for the inconvenience to users. Due to the Facebook's long outage where its messaging platforms were also unusable, Telegram reportedly saw 3 million new users signing up for its services. The outages lasted almost a full day, making it Facebook's longest downtime ever.

The company acknowledged the service interruption via Twitter, but it ruled out a possibility resulting from a distributed denial-of-service, or DDoS attack, on its platform or servers.

Facebook suffered the worst outage since inception yesterday affecting users across the platform and other services including WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram. The company said it would have eventually shared all details about what caused the problem, but wanted to first restore all services.

Facebook is facing a slew of lawsuits and regulatory inquiries over its privacy practices, including ongoing investigations by the US Federal Trade Commission, the Securities and Exchange Commission and two state agencies in NY.

"We can not predict when issues might arise with our Products". According to the outage tracker Down Detector, WhatsApp is still experiencing issues.

Court documents say Vavic was paid $250,000 and designated two students as recruits for his team to facilitate their admission. They've also charged coaches, college test administrators and alleged mastermind William Singer of Newport Beach, California.

Facebook's shares fell almost 2 percent in morning trading on Thursday.

According to a report by The Sun, several thousand people complained about the problems faced by the smartphone apps on Down Detector, a website that records outages. It cited over 300 reports on Thursday morning, though many reported that their access had been restored.

Users of Facebook were unable to post anything and the desktop version of the Messenger was not loading either.

Things are since back to "normal" as millions of users now have access to their accounts both on Facebook and Instagram.

From about noon NY time on Wednesday, users encountered only partially loaded pages or no content at all, accompanied by a message saying an error had occurred.
