Facebook, the largest social network in the world, registered major access difficulties on Tuesday as a result of a server-related problem, but the failure was finally resolved, the group said.
Instagram, a photo-sharing network owned by Facebook, also reported technical problems. Downdetector's independent location has published a map showing the cuts affecting most continents, especially in North America, Europe, and Asia.

The flock seemed to spread from early morning to Tuesday afternoon in California, where there are a group of 2.000 million users.
On November 12, Facebook stopped working in North and South America.
That same Tuesday, in an interview with CNN Business, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said he was not considering resigning, despite social network problems in recent months related to the use of data by his users.
"That's not the plan," Zuckerberg said in an interview with CNN Business, after asking him to step down. He also defended the number 2 of the social network, Cheryl Sandberg, highly critical of the crisis management that has affected the Internet giant.
"Cheryl is a really important part of this company and is doing a lot of effort for many of the big problems we have," he added.
In recent months, Facebook has been accused of failing to prevent Russia from mixing its platform during the 2016 elections. He was also involved in the Cambridge Analytics case, in which the data of his users were used to help the then candidate Donald Trump. In addition, a security breach has exposed the private data of millions of users.
The New York Times this week announced that Facebook did not say everything that was known about Russia's interference and that it had hired a communications office to spread negative information about other companies in Silicon Valley to distract.
"Many of the things that were in that article we talked to the press before, and we told them that what we saw was not true, but they still publish it," Zuckerberg said.
