Facebook stock falls after the executive in charge of all its products steps down

Facebook stock is falling Friday, the day after Chief Product Officer Chris Cox announced he was leaving the company in light of its recent pivot to privacy.

Shares fell as much as 4.5 percent in early trading, sinking below $163 at its lowest point. The stock eased off in mid-morning trading and was last seen roughly 2.5 percent down.

Insiders told CNBC that Cox was the “heart and soul” of Facebook. He was among the earlier employees and reported directly to CEO Mark Zuckerberg. His departure hangs uncertainty on Facebook’s recent announcement to integrate its family of apps and prioritize private communication.

Separately Friday, Facebook drew criticism related to a terrorist incident in New Zealand in which a shooter live-streamed his attack on Facebook. The shootings claimed at least 49 lives.

The company was alerted to the post by New Zealand police and said it has been taking down re-postings of the video and messages praising the shooter as it becomes aware of them.

On top of that, Facebook suffered its longest outage ever this week. The service was reinstated Thursday after a widespread outage that last nearly a day.

In a statement Thursday, the company blamed a “server configuration change that triggered a cascading series of issues” for the outage.

The stock shed 1.8 percent by the end of trading Thursday.

Facebook has been down for hours, Instagram and WhatsApp also affected

Facebook users around the world reported issues logging into and posting on the site as well as on Instagram and WhatsApp thoughout the day on Wednesday. Facebook did not give a reason for the outage, and provided minimal information other than acknowledging it is aware services are down in some areas.

Facebook shares were relatively unchanged Wednesday afternoon.

The company acknowledged the outage in a tweet Wednesday, saying, “We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps. We’re working to resolve the issue as soon as possible.”

It later confirmed the problem was not the result of a DDoS attack, which refers to a Distributed Denial-of-Service attack in which a hacker overwhelms a site by flooding it with fake traffic.

Reports of problems with Facebook peaked at over 11,000 worldwide according to Downdetector, a website where users can report problems on apps and websites. Downdetector listed zero problems by about 5 p.m. Eastern, and many people reported their access had been restored, but Facebook has not yet confirmed the issues were resolved.

Users reported a variety of problems, from being unable to load the site at all to not being able to post comments. Facebook users posted screenshots on Twitter showing error messages when they tried to load the app. When loading the site, some users’ got a message on the screen saying “Account Temporarily Unavailable.”

At a Facebook event at the South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas Wednesday, the company’s head of video products cracked a joke when he ran into technical issues.

“Today is the technical difficulties day for Facebook, I guess,” cracked Paresh Rajwat, in a reference to the company’s worldwide service outage when his presentation’s video failed to include audio. Rajwat was announcing new features for Facebook’s Watch video service.

Technical issues with Facebook have historically posed serious problems for advertisers who use the platform and even other websites.

Facebook previously experienced an outage of its tool for advertisers in November at a time when marketers were trying to place ads for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

In 2013, Facebook experienced a glitch which took several websites down with it thanks to the prevalence of its login feature across the internet. When users tried to log into a website with their Facebook profile, they were directed to a Facebook error page, Business Insider reported at the time. The glitch, which only lasted a few minutes, affected websites including The New York Times and CNN, Business Insider reported.

Wells Fargo says it is working to fully restore systems as outage spills into day two

Amid a deluge of complaints that paychecks and other direct deposits weren’t going through to customer accounts, Wells Fargo on Friday said it has corrected the issue and transactions should now be reflected in customer balances.

The bank is still scrambling to restore normal service after customers were shut out of mobile and online banking services on Thursday. ATM services have since been restored and branches are operational, but the effects of the system outage have spilled into a second day.

“As a result of the process to restore systems yesterday, some transactions and balances were not visible in online banking or ATMs” as of Friday morning, Wells Fargo said in a statement. “The transactions were processed normally, and customers can use their accounts with confidence. This issue has now been corrected, and all transactions are now visible. We are experiencing higher than normal volumes so there still may be delays in online banking and contact center response times.”

Some Wells Fargo employees were affected. “Some team members were not able to see the payroll deposits in their online banking accounts for a short period of time. Wells Fargo payroll was processed normally. This issue has now been corrected,” the bank said in a separate statement.

The outage is putting stress on employees of companies that use Wells Fargo for payroll processing. Vanessa Alonso, who works in the accounting department of a small printing company called Nuvo Group in New York City, said she had tried to put payroll through for the company’s two dozen or so employees but was unable. She said she’s been trying to reach Wells Fargo about the problem with no success.

“I just get a message that says ‘We’re experiencing high call volume,'” she said.

In a statement late Thursday night, the San Francisco-based bank said that mobile and online banking systems were operational except for some features such as consumer credit card and mortgage balances, and added that it was working to restore them. Contact centers are up and running, Wells Fargo said, but people might have to wait longer than normal if they are calling in.

“We continue to work on restoring all our services as soon as possible, and encourage customers to contact us if they have questions or concerns,” Wells Fargo said in the statement. “We apologize for the inconvenience caused by these system issues, and we want our customers to know that any Wells Fargo fees incurred as a result of these issues will be reversed.”

The bank said Wells Fargo credit and debit cards could be used for purchases.The complaints piled up on social media, however, with anecdotal reports that direct deposits weren’t reflected in balances on the mobile app. Wells Fargo, the fourth-largest U.S. bank with a sprawling coast-to-coast branch operation, made several posts on Twitter, most recently saying, “We want our customers to know that this is a contained issue affecting one of our facilities, and not due to any cybersecurity event.”

Earlier Thursday the bank said the system issues were due to a power shutdown at one of its facilities after smoke was detected after routine maintenance.

It’s not clear if that incident was connected to one at a data center Wells Fargo keeps in Minnesota, where a fire suppression system was accidentally tripped early Thursday morning, prompting a visit from the local fire department. That incident happened at 5 a.m., and the bank called the fire department at 9 a.m. The fire department told CNBC on Thursday that there was no fire.

Wells Fargo reports outage on mobile app and online banking

In a post on Twitter, the San Francisco-based bank said, “We apologize to our customers who may be experiencing an issue with our online banking and mobile app. Thanks for your patience while we research this issue. If you are impacted, please check back here for updates.”

A subsequent post said, “We’re experiencing a systems issue that is causing intermittent outages, and we’re working to restore services as soon as possible.”

A “fire suppression” system was accidentally activated earlier Thursday at a Wells Fargo data center in Minnesota, though the fire department near the center told CNBC it responded and there was no fire. The local newspaper, Shoreview Press, reported that the incident started at 5 a.m. local time and Wells Fargo called the fire department at 9 a.m. it is not known whether this was related to the system interruption.

In another tweet Thursday, the bank said the system issues were “due to a power shutdown at one of our facilities, initiated after smoke was detected following routine maintenance.”

Wells is the fourth-largest U.S. bank by assets with a sprawling branch operation that reaches coast to coast. People attempting to visit its website see a message that says it’s experiencing technical difficulties.

Wells Fargo’s Hilary O’Byrne acknowledged the systems issue to an NBC affiliate in Philadelphia but couldn’t say how many people were affected.

The bank did not return CNBC’s calls for comment.

CNBC’s Ryan Ruggiero contributed reporting.

Bing outage in China said to be technical error, not censors' block

Search engine Bing’s outage in China last week was a technical error, rather than an intentional censorship block, a source familiar with the matter said, although Chinese authorities and Microsoft have not commented on the topic.

From a technical perspective, a person at Microsoft told Reuters, the site appeared to have been blocked in a manner similar to sites blocked by the government.

But the company had received no prior notice from authorities, and the disruption was not intentional on the part of the government, added the person, who declined to be identified, citing the sensitivity of the matter.

Microsoft was not immediately available for comment on Monday. Last week, although it confirmed the outage, it declined to give details.

The Cyberspace Administration of China did not respond immediately to a faxed request from Reuters seeking comment.

Starting from Thursday, Internet users in China attempting to access cn.bing.com, the search engine’s domestic URL, found themselves directed to an error page.

Attempts to log on to Facebook, Google search, or other sites blocked by China’s Great Firewall, encountered the same fate.

Service had resumed by late on Friday, however.

Engineers at ExpressVPN, a provider of virtual private network (VPN) software allowing internet users in China to access censored websites, ran tests during the outage to determine its origin.

They found that rather than domain name service (DNS) poisoning, the most common means for blocking sites under the Great Firewall, Bing’s outage appeared to employ a technique known as “black-holing”.

With this method, rather than re-directing to a dummy server traffic headed for a specific website, the traffic is simply cut off en route, usually at the internet service provider (ISP) level.

Microsoft Bing is restored in China after nearly a day-long outage

Microsoft’s Bing search engine was restored in China Thursday after a nearly day-long outage, a company spokesperson confirmed to CNBC.

Users first reported the outage Thursday morning local time. The service was restored by 4:30 p.m. in New York on Thursday.

The temporary blockage of Microsoft’s Bing comes at a time when the U.S. and China are locked in a long-running trade dispute, with market participants increasingly concerned that the conflict could spill over into a so-called “tech war.”

The restoration of Bing will likely ease some concerns. Bing is the last major non-Chinese search platform that operates in China, and has apparently escaped a more permanent bar for the time being.

The internet is heavily censored in China as a form of information control. Many non-Chinese websites and social media services such as Google, Twitter and Facebook are blocked.
