Facebook confirmed that the glitches are fixed which affected its platforms.

If you recently faced issues uploading or viewing photos then you should know that it was due to a glitch. Users all across the world were unable to access any files on their social accounts.

The glitch affected the platforms including Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp.

According to an official tweet:

 “The issue has been resolved and we should be back at 100% for everyone.”

It also added that an unspecified issue had suddenly cropped up during routine maintenance.

Facebook has more than 2.3 billion active users on its platform. Instagram has one billion users who were all affected by the problem.

As reported, users were shown grey boxes annotated with text explaining what the firm’s image analysis software had suggested being the content of the original photos.

Even Twitter faced certain issues due to which users were not able to send a direct message or receive any notification. This continued for some time.

The company has already apologized for the inconvenience caused to the users.

“We’re almost 100% resolved. There may be some residual effects for a small group of people, but overall your DMs should be working properly now. We appreciate your patience!”

In March, Instagram and Facebook suffered their longest period of disruption in their whole history. The problems affected both the platforms. The same happened to WhatsApp in April.

The latest issues followed earlier disruption on Tuesday when Cloudflare which is a well-known company that offers internet security to website operators. They suffered a big problem which was caused by them. It had affected thousands of websites to display 502 errors when visited. The company, however, put the blame on flawed software.

The company said:

 “Our testing processes were insufficient in this case and we are reviewing and making changes to our testing and deployment process to avoid incidents like this in the future.”

Right now all the problems have been taken care of and users are able to use their favorite social media platforms all over again.
