SAN FRANCISCO — Facebook and its family of apps were inaccessible for about two hours on Friday afternoon, the second time in a week that the social network experienced widespread problems with its services.

The site DownDetector.com, a service that relies on reports from users to determine whether websites are having problems, showed that all of Facebook’s main products — Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger and the “big blue app” of Facebook — suffered downtime at around 3 p.m. Eastern time.

Just after 5 p.m. Eastern time, Facebook said it had fixed the issue, which had affected people around the world.

“Sincere apologies to anyone who wasn’t able to access our products in the last couple of hours,” the company said
