Facebook Crashes Worldwide

UPDATE (3:00 pm ET): The Facebook outages appear to have subsided, yet the website has not yet announced the source of the problem.
Facebook experienced worldwide outages Wednesday morning.
At the time of publication, Facebook was receiving nearly 2,000 outage reports every 20 minutes, according to the website’s outage reporter.
The outage reports were reported in the United States, Canada, Turkey, India, Russia, Australia, several European countries, and other nations across the globe.
Users attempting to reach the Facebook-owned platform Instagram — at least on desktop computers — were also met with an error message.
The Daily Caller reached out in an email to a Facebook representative who could not highlight the source of the problem.
“We’re working on resolving,” the representative responded in a statement. “I don’t have an ETA on a fix yet. Thanks for your patience.”
This is a developing situation. Check back for updates. The Daily Caller is currently monitoring the situation.
I did not watch the video.
It is a huge problem.
They could secure more robustly but to reach more secure state would require much behavior changes of the industry. They have no incentive to change their business models nor where the devices are manufactured.
The devices and the apps the consumer installs on them turn them into massive tracking devices and big data collection tools. Where this exist offers opportunities for hacking.
The embedded that stores critical personal information well setting there for pickins.
Thought this video was excellent. We need more info on this subject. Thanks
