Facebook and its subsidiaries Instagram and WhatsApp experienced widespread outages on Sunday for the second time in the past month (and the third time this year), with issues reported starting at around 11am BST and extending until around 2pm.

Per Bloomberg, Facebook and Instagram domains ceased to be accessible by users during that time period, while Messenger and WhatsApp were also non-functional.

In a statement to the news agency, the company offered few details:

[Yesterday], some people may have experienced trouble connecting to the family of apps.

The issue has since been resolved; we’re sorry for any inconvenience.

Users worldwide appeared to be impacted, with Bloomberg noting that Twitter users everywhere from the U.S. to Israel and Thailand were complaining about the outage.
