It just occurred to me: what happened to all the web services that use "Authenticate with Facebook"?

If user sessions had expired, were people locked out of their accounts during the outage?

@kicou Yes, anything relying on including OAuth was non-operational.

@kicou J'ai entendu dire que ça ne fonctionnait pas pendant la panne.

@kicou Wake up call! Thankfully, I don't rely on Facebook for authentication. Just Gmail, unfortunately.

@kicou Oath is great, in a world without password managers (which are commonly an online service that when down means you can'd log into anything....)

@kicou yes. FB employees tried to use zoom and slack with their FB accounts to get in touch since their internal system did not worked. And they could not.
