Outage across Facebook-owned platforms including Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger have now fully been resolved, but for how long will the problem persist?
As an update to the previous post that suggests that Facebook was dealing with an outage across its platforms, this article addresses the situation which after several hours has finally been resolved. Facebook more than ever before has been experiencing internet outage more often, and while the previous and hopefully the last one that happens took longer time than any other to be resolved, people are beginning to wonder why, and whether such problem will be a persistent one.
Yesterday, around 7:49 PM ET, Facebook posted a message to its official Twitter account saying the “issue has since been resolved and we should be back at 100 percent for everyone. We’re sorry for any inconvenience.” Instagram similarly said its issues were more or less resolved, too.
Earlier today, some people and businesses experienced trouble uploading or sending images, videos and other files on our apps. The issue has since been resolved and we should be back at 100% for everyone. We're sorry for any inconvenience.

Of course, it is not unusual for apps and website to experience such outage, however, if it happens more often, then it suddenly becomes rather too irritating as it appears to be in the case of Facebook. As a matter of fact, this is about the third time similar issue is re-occurring in the last few months, and it has been steering questions like, “is there a lasting solution to the outage?”
Assuming you don’t understand how Facebook outage works- the error affects a suite of popular apps under the parent company including Instagram, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger, of which those apps collectively have billions of users who rely on them. Now when such outage occurs, it affects various operations across the platform, sometimes partially and in some other cases fully. While it is usually Partial in most cases, users are only allowed to certain features, let’s say the messaging operation alone, which means other activities such as downloading Media, Voice note among others will be hindered.
When this happens, it becomes a big deal for some individuals and other businesses who are keen to the service a medium of operation, which indirectly means that every hour they’re offline or acting strange can mean real inconveniences or lost money.
To cut the long story short, the problem has been resolved and businesses and individuals can commence operation.
Below is the previous article which this update is built on…
If you are not aware, there is an ongoing outage across all Facebook platform including WhatsApp, Instagram, and Messenger
Well, this may not take long too long to be resolved as Facebook informs that it is aware of the ‘outage’ and it is currently working on getting it fixed as soon as possible. If you have logged into any of the Three accounts lately, then you would have noticed or had difficulty trying to load images, videos, and other data across the platforms.
Also, as a result of the problem, some people are unable to load photos in the Facebook News Feed, view stories on Instagram, or send messages in WhatsApp. However, Facebook says it is aware of the issues and “working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.” as seen on the verge, one of our reliable source.
The issues started around 8AM ET, although in some locations, it began just moments ago, which implies that the problem is only getting worse. Although, according to an insider the problem now appears to be clearing up. It is only a matter of time to see how true the info can be.
The errors aren’t affecting all images; many pictures on Facebook and Instagram still load, but others are appearing blank. DownDetector has also received reports of people being unable to load messages in Facebook Messenger.
While this kind of issue can be very irritating, it has happened on several occasions just in the course of this year, more than ever before, and it makes people be wondering what exactly is going on in with the Facebook team. Personally, I would like to ask if the tech giant needs more helping hands or its just some random problem that is becoming rather persistent?
