Facebook recently went down earlier today, and as well as the social network there were also issues with Instagram, which led to rumors of a possible hack.
Facebook has now confirmed that the downtime was cause by an internal issue and not by a hack, you can see a statement from the company below.
Earlier this evening many people had trouble accessing Facebook and Instagram. This was not the result of a third party attack but instead occurred after we introduced a change that affected our configuration systems. We moved quickly to fix the problem, and both services are back to 100 percent for everyone.
Both Facebook and Instagram are back online and both services are working normally.
