The company's March outage also impacted the wider Facebook product family, including Instagram and WhatsApp, and persisted for hours.

This weekend, Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp all went down for many users, rendering the applications completely unusable for hours. The issues affected users in Asia, Europe and the USA, according to the site.
