Facebook's resolution fails and Zuckerberg says he will not give up



Facebook, the largest social network in the world, has experienced access difficulties Tuesday for much of the day as a result of a server problem, but failure was finally resolved, the group said.

Instagram, the photo sharing network owned by Facebook, also announced technical issues. The independent Downdetector website published a map showing the cuts that affected most continents, especially North America, Europe and Asia.

The malfunction seems to have spread from early in the morning to Tuesday afternoon in California, where there is a group of 2,000 million users.

On November 12, Facebook stopped working briefly in North and South America.

Zuckerberg remains

That same Tuesday, in an interview with CNN Business, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said he does not think of giving up despite the social networking issues in recent months about using data from users.

"This is not the plan," Zuckerberg said in an interview with CNN Business after being asked whether he would quit. He also defended social network number two, Sheryl Sandberg, who was criticized for managing the crises that affected the internet giant.

"Sheryl is an important part of this company and makes a lot of effort in many of the big issues we have," he added.

In recent months, Facebook has been accused of not hindering Russia's intervention through its platform during the 2016 election. It was also involved in Cambridge Analytica, where its user data was used to help the candidate then Donald Trump. In addition, a security breach has exposed the private data of millions of users.

The New York Times reported this week that Facebook did not say all that it knew about Russian interference and hired a communications office to spread bad information about other companies in Silicon Valley to distract attention.

"Many of the things in this article we talked about earlier with journalists and told them that what we saw was not true and they still published it," Zuckerberg said.
