Facebook and Instagram both appeared to go down temporarily Thursday evening, with thousands of people reporting outages.
Both platforms were back online a little after 6 p.m. EDT.
“Earlier today, a configuration change caused Facebook services to be unavailable to some people. We quickly investigated and resolved the issue. We apologize for any inconvenience,” a Facebook company spokesperson told The Hill.
The social media giant’s products went offline last month as well, which the company chalked up to a “technical issue.”
