However, the latest Facebook service outage shows the issues that arise when attempting to consolidate a number of online services and apps together.
We've asked Facebook how it intends to resolve its issues with angry advertisers, but did not receive an immediate reply. The app is also funded primarily through user donations rather than targeted ad services as Facebook is. "The last time Facebook had a disruption of this magnitude was in 2008, when the site had 150m users-compared with around 2.3bn monthly users today", the website reported.

Facebook said the issue had been resolved and that it's systems were recovering. The hashtag #FacebookDown and #InstagramDown were trending on Twitter for much of the day.
