Investing.com – Facebook stock (NASDAQ:FB) slumped nearly 6% Monday as a global outage engulfed all the apps in its umbrella, namely Whatsapp, Instagram and the parent app itself.

"We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience," Facebook posted on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR).



"This site can't be reached" was the messaging showing up as one tried to access Facebook.

The issue emerged just before midday New York time.

Users posted messages on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) saying the popular social networking and communication platforms were inaccessible around 1130 ET.

The website downdetector.com, which tracks web services, also reported a sharp spike in complaints by users.

Facebook’s daily active users (DAUs) rose 7% to 1.91 billion in the second quarter, while monthly active users (MAUs) also rose 7% to 2.90 billion.

The company expects year-on-year revenue growth to decline in the current half of the year.

    • What market data to trade on Tuesday: GBP/USD, AUD/USD, AHT As the last central bank meetings of the year start to take place, investors will be keeping an eye on the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) to see if Omicron has had any effect on its monetary policy decision. On the corporate calendar, expectations are high for Ashtead (AHT) to continue delivering a strong performance in the first half of the year. https://www.ig.com/uk/market-insight-articles/what-market-data-to-trade-on-tuesday--gbp-usd--aud-usd--aht-211206
    • Concerning the WHO see this video. Bill Gates gives the WHO a billion a year and pretty much dictates WHO policy, often with disastrous results. Tucker Carlson interview with Robert J Kennedy Jr (nephew of JFK US president). Reposted now that YouTube have already banned it since it was posted on the forum last week (badge of honour). (note he has a speech impediment and the sound is poor for the first couple of minutes until it gets set right)   Tucker Carslon RFK Jr. Interview (FULL INTERVIEW) (brandnewtube.com)
