There are many indications that many of Facebook’s global failures are due to poorly functioning DNS servers, whose main task is managing web domains and changing site names with IP numbers. However, experts point out that the real cause may be elsewhere and behind the BGP contraction.
BGP stands for Border Gateway Protocol. It is a network protocol for exchanging routing information conducted by Internet top level autonomous organizations.
The problem is that in the absence of DNS server crashes and BGP pathways (which determine access paths to the nodes of the world’s largest social network), similar global failures occur.

And apparently there are no such ways, because all the ways created by the PGP protocol determine the access paths to Facebook’s servers, which should be removed as a result of errors that occur when updating the table of contents. Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average person.
According to Cloudflare, the failure of Facebook and other services was removed before midnight Polish time. So it lasted more than six hours. This is by far the longest such event in the entire history of this social network.
