Social media platform Facebook's desktop version website crashed on Tuesday morning at around 6:30 AM. The website came back at around 7:25 AM, after an outage of almost an hour. While the user could access the cached feed on the mobile application, the Facebook outage had also locked them out of mobile apps linked to social media login.
Confused Facebook users took to twitter to express their inability to log in to their favourite social media platform. According to users, the Facebook crash had locked them out of the applications which are linked to it for automatic login like Tinder, e-commerce sites, Netflix, fitness application, Instagram, etc.
During the down time, the crash page of Facebook said, "We're working on it and we'll get it fixed as soon as we can."
