MASSIVE OUTAGES: Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp Suffer Widespread Issues

2

Users around the world are reporting issues logging into and posting on Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp.

Facebook says it is aware of outages on its platforms and is working to resolve the issue.

According to downdetector.com, which monitors websites, the outages started around 12 p.m. E.T. on Wednesday in parts of the U.S., including the East and West Coast, parts of Europe and elsewhere. Both Facebook’s desktop site and app appeared to be affected. Some users saw a message that said Facebook was down for “required maintenance.”

Facebook did not say what was causing the outages, which were still occurring as of 8:45 p.m. E.T., or which regions were affected.

Nearly 100,000 users follow YWN on those platforms, and many were reaching out to YWN reporting outages.

YWN Instagram has more than 60,000, WhatsApp more than 10,000, and Facebook around 14,000.

  1. According to the school I went to 60k + 10k + 14k = 84,000. Weird how that jumped to 100k as you said “Nearly 100,000 users follow YWN on those platforms, and many were reaching out to YWN reporting outages”
    And for those who will reply, but the views on the website too… That wasn’t what he was referring to. He said explicitly “On those platform” referring to the 3 platforms owned by Facebook that have their service down.
