Facebook's ad platform, Facebook Ad Manager, was also down.

In addition to looking at the data deals, the probes focus on disclosures that the company shared the user data of 87 million people with Cambridge Analytica, a British consulting firm that worked with US President Donald Trump's campaign.

In April Zuckerberg took questions for almost five hours in a Senate hearing without making any further promises to support new legislation or change how the social network does business, foiling attempts by senators to pin him down.

The social network said on Thursday that changes to a server configuration were to blame. The company said it has fixed the glitch.

"We are still investigating the overall impact of this issue, including the possibility of refunds for advertisers".

The outage coupled with a possible loss of users and revenue just added to the pain. Durov's announcement doesn't mean that three million people have abandoned Facebook, but don't underestimate the network effect if newcomers find they like Telegram and encourage their friends to join.

Le'Veon Bell Agrees To Four-Year, $52.5M Deal With Jets
There was never any question that the Jets should go after Bell in free agency, but NY needed to be smart in doing so. The Raiders did make an offer to Bell and there was some real buzz in the building around noon on Tuesday.

The company blamed a change it had made to its system for the outage. In any case, a contact within Telegram confirmed to TechCrunch's colleagues what was already quite obvious: the merit of this sudden growth is the aforementioned problems ("These outages always drive new users"), but is partly attributed to the will of a growing number of users to distance themselves from Facebook.

About 24 hours after users began reporting problems with Facebook, Instagram and other apps, Facebook announced Thursday - on Twitter - that it had resolved the issues and that its systems are "recovering".

"We're very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate everyone's patience", Facebook said.

Ookla, the Seattle-based company which counts Downdetector among its stable of properties, had its eye on Facebook all day Wednesday as the social media giant struggled with a severe service issue.

Facebook estimates that 2.7 billion people use its apps, with more than 2 billion users posting and messaging on its services every day.
