    (Reuters) -Meta Platforms Inc said on Friday it has fixed the issue that was preventing users from accessing its social media platforms.

    “Earlier today, a configuration change caused some people to have trouble accessing our products,” a Meta spokesperson said.

    More than 11,000 users across Instagram, Facebook (NASDAQ:) and Messenger had reported issues with accessing the apps, sending messages and logging into their accounts, according to outage tracking website

    Meta’s messaging app WhatsApp had faced a global outage just earlier this week, which was later resolved.
