Facebook appears to be back up and running this morning after one of the worst outages in its history. The site, along with Instagram and Whatsapp, suffered problems for around eight hours across the globe. People struggled to gain access to the three websites, but Facebook has not provided any information about what happened.

A Facebook spokesman confirmed the partial outage, but did not provide an update. The social networking site was having issues for over 12 hours, according to its developer’s page. Facebook said on Twitter: ‘We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps. ‘We’re working to resolve the issue as soon as possible.’ ‘We’re focused on working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, but can confirm that the issue is not related to a DDoS attack. In a DDoS attack, hackers use computer networks they control to send such a large number of requests for information from websites that servers that host them can no longer handle the traffic and the sites become unreachable.
