    "Facebook, Instagram go down around the world in an apparent outage...

    The massively popular social network started having problems at around noon Eastern time, with issues popping up across Facebook proper, Facebook Messenger and Instagram around the world.

    Some users of Facebook-owned WhatsApp reported having issues sending photos on the popular messaging app...

    Downdetector.com, which monitors websites, showed the company experiencing issues across a large portion of the U.S. and Europe in addition to reported problems in parts of South America, Asia and Australia...

    It is not immediately clear what caused Wednesday's issue.

    In a tweet at 3:03 p.m. ET the company reiterated that it is still working on a fix. Facebook also confirmed that the outage was not the result of any distributed denial of service, or DDoS, attack..."

    Facebook still down.

    "Facebook suffers the most severe outage in its history

    Facebook is suffering the most severe outage in its history, with key services rendered unusable for users globally for much of Wednesday.

    The last time Facebook had a disruption of this magnitude was in 2008, when the site had 150m users - compared to around 2.3bn monthly users today.

    Facebook's main product, its two messaging apps and image-sharing site Instagram were all affected.

    The cause of the interruption has not yet been made public..."

    "Facebook agrees to overhaul targeted advertising system for job, housing and loan ads after discrimination complaints

    Facebook on Tuesday agreed to overhaul its lucrative targeted advertising system to settle accusations that landlords, lenders and employers use the platform to discriminate.

    The far-reaching settlement compels Facebook to withhold a wide array of detailed demographic information — including Zip codes, gender and age — from advertisers when they market housing, credit and job opportunities...

    Civil rights advocates have warned for years that Facebook’s ads violated anti-discrimination laws because advertisers were able to use that data to exclude African Americans, women, seniors, people with disabilities and others..."
