Facebook is back at full speed a day after its biggest outage blackout ever.

Over the past year, the social network has announced a series of moves to tighten handling of data, including eliminating most of its data-sharing partnerships with outside companies.

In addition to Facebook, irate users noted that the outage likewise affected Instagram and WhatsApp.

The outage appeared to be abating early Thursday. 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. "We're working on getting it fixed as soon as we can".

The lengthy disruption is likely to upset advertisers that spend large amounts of money to reach potential customers on Facebook platforms.

People went on Twitter to vent their frustration about the problems. The hashtag #FacebookDown was a popular theme on Twitter.

The company blamed a change it had made to its system for the outage. As of March 2018, Telegram boasted a user base of 200 million people, so a three million user boost in 24 hours is a significant increase for the app. There were still sporadic problems Thursday morning.

The outage-tracking website Down Detector showed significantly fewer people having issues accessing Facebook and Instagram on Thursday as compared to Wednesday, when the outage began. "We've now resolved the issues and our systems are recovering", Facebook wrote from its official Twitter account on Thursday.

That second tweet was posted around 3 p.m. ET. The Facebook family of apps, including Instagram, were down for almost 14 hours, according to CNN.
