Reuters could not immediately confirm the issue affecting the services. However, an error message on Facebook’s webpage suggested a domain name system (DNS) error.
DNS allows web addresses to take users to their destinations. A similar cloud company, Akamai Technologies Inc., shut down several websites in July.
Shares of Facebook fell 5.5 percent in Monday afternoon trading, the worst day in almost a year.
Meanwhile, the social media giant’s instant messaging platform WhatsApp was also shut down for more than 35,000 users, while Messenger was down for about 99,800 users.
Facebook has faced similar major setbacks with its app suite in March and July this year.
