A wave of outages has affected major sites throughout the summer including problems at Instagram and Facebook earlier this month that brought the platforms to a grinding halt.
Instagram in particular has been hit with multiple issues throughout the last several months including outages in May, June, and the latest in July.
The latest outage lasted for more than eight hours and also affected Facebook’s encrypted messaging app WhatsApp.
Facebook said that the outage was a side-effect of ‘routine maintenance.’
In June Google Calendar users were also left scrambling after being presented with a 404 error.
The outage, which was notable given many people’s reliance on Google Calendar to organize their schedules, lasted for several hours.
