What the Breaking News Javed Hayat said is more plausible here:
Verified: DNS records that notify the system. http://Facebook.com or http://Instagram.com. I withdrew it from the global routing schedule this morning. Can you imagine working on FB when your email no longer works and all your FB-based tools fail?
However, we do not know why this change took place. This may result from a change or update to a faulty internal system. Now why all this speculation? FB alone controls DNS records.
