Social media services Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram are back up and running after an outage that lasted almost six hours, Facebook says.

The company says the cause was a faulty configuration change.

In a statement, Facebook said that the faulty configuration change affected the company’s internal tools and systems which complicated attempts to resolve the problem.

It added that there was “no evidence that user data was compromised as a result of this downtime”.

Earlier, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg apologised to those affected by the outage.
