Some links about the outage:

- Understanding How Facebook Disappeared from the Internet
- Update about the October 4th outage

Wikipedia has an entry about the outage:
- 2021 Facebook outage
with a good summary:
Quote
On October 4, 2021, at 15:39 UTC, the social network Facebook and its subsidiaries, Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp, Mapillary, and Oculus, became globally unavailable for more than seven hours. The outage also prevented anyone trying to use "Log in with Facebook" from accessing third-party sites. During the outage, many users flocked to Twitter, Discord, and Telegram, resulting in disruptions on these apps' servers. The outage was caused by the loss of IP routes to the Facebook Domain Name System (DNS) servers, which were all self-hosted at the time. Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) routing was restored for the affected prefixes at about 20:50, and DNS services began to be available again at 21:05 UTC, but application-layer services were slowly restored to Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp more than an hour later, with service generally restored for users by 22:45
