TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp have gone down around the world, with thousands of users reporting technical problems.
Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp are all experiencing issues this morning for users worldwide. Facebook and Instagram are both inaccessible, with news feeds refusing to refresh and the main Facebook.com domain unavailable. WhatsApp messages aren’t being sent or received, and users of Facebook’s main services (Facebook owns Instagram and WhatsApp) have headed to Twitter to share that they’re having issues. Messenger, Facebook’s chat service, is also down, the Verge reported.
The outages appear to have started at around 6:30AM ET this morning, and some locations appear to be more widely affected than users. Facebook’s issues come just a month after Facebook experienced its worst outage ever. Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram were all inaccessible for hours last month, and it wasn’t until over 24 hours later that Facebook finally gave the all clear. Facebook blamed a “server configuration change,” and apologized for the outages.
The monitoring website Down Detector reported issues across Europe, the US, and the Philippines, according to Independent.
More than 4,000 Instagram outages and 6,000 Whatsapp issues have been reported to Down Detector.
