Facebook appears to be recovering from a 14+ hour hiatus affecting all its products leaving them mostly inaccessible across the world. The company's main social network, its two messaging apps and image-sharing site Instagram were all affected.

Facebook has yet to offer an explanation for the outage. The last time Facebook had a disruption of this magnitude was in 2008, when the site had 150m users compared with around 2.3bn monthly users today.

The problems began yesterday afternoon [13 March 2019] and only showed real signs of recovery this morning. They meant core platforms many people rely on every day to communicate were rendered mostly useless.
