It’s not uncommon for major platforms like Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp to experience downtime and normally, it doesn’t take them very long to come back up. However, several reports have claimed that in some several parts of the world, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are down.
According to these reports, it appears that users are able to launch Facebook and Instagram but are unable to post new content. It’s not possible to send or receive pictures on WhatsApp too. This means that it’s not really possible to get anything done on these platforms at the moment.
Some reports have further stated that it seems Instagram has been hit the hardest by this downtime. Posts don’t seem to be loading, the button to post new content isn’t working, Stories are down and direct messages are not going through too. The outages have primarily been experienced by users in Nigeria, United Kingdom, India, the Philippines, Texas, Seattle, Washington and parts of Latin America.
There has been no comment on the matter yet from either Facebook, Instagram or WhatsApp so it’s unclear what has caused this downtime.
