Too Long; Didn't Read
Facebook iOS iOS SDK Shuts Down last evening after a change to the Facebook API caused major outages worldwide. Spotify, Pinterest, and TikTok were all down. Crash was caused by a change in the format of an API response from Facebook. The data type of a particular property (“restrictive_data_filter_params.is_health_app”) suddenly changed in the response from a dictionary to a bool, causing a crash. This meant that people’ applications were crashing ON BOOTs from application booting.
