(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 Downdetector.com.
Meta’s messaging app WhatsApp had faced a global outage just earlier this week, which was later resolved.
Downdetector tracks outages by collating status reports from several sources including user-submitted errors on its platform. The outage may be affecting a larger number of users.
