Others also believe the outage is from some servers (which we all think).
During the outage, shares on Facebook have gone down by 5.3%, making Marck Zckerbeg lose over $2 million. Users were not directed to the correct Domain Name System.

A security expert made it known that a configuration error inside Facebook servers may cause outages.
