Since this afternoon users have been complaining about FACEBOOK having issues with allowing them to access popular social media service. The problems were confirmed.
UPDATE: A confirmation on the issues users have been experiencing comes from Facebook.
A spokesperson stated to Express.co.uk a spokesperson said: “We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing the Facebook app. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.”
Even though fans have been deleting and reinstalling the app, they seem to have still problems with the app not stopping crashing.
The issues had begun at around 12 pm and since website Down Detector has received hundreds of reports that state the same problem.
This is what they have said:
“I give up @facebook, please produce an app update soon, I can’t take the constant crashing.”
And another added: “@facebook why does the app keep crashing? Doesn’t stay open for longer than 2 seconds. Uninstalled and reinstalled update but still crashes each time I open the app.”
Even though this has not been confirmed it is still worth mentioning. Reports suggest that Samsung devices are the ones significantly hit.
Facebook might be fined with £500,000 from Britain’s data watchdog for breaches of the Data Protection Act.
ICO says that the social media broke the law being unable to be transparent about how others could harvest people’s data and it failed for people’s information.
Facebook is kept under control by ICO since it was caught harvesting the data of 50 million of its users around the world and is being held under supervision since February.
“People cannot have control over their data if they don’t know or understand how it is being used. – Elizabeth Denham, Information Commissioner
“That’s why greater and genuine transparency about the use of data analytics is vital.”
