Many users across the world were facing issues using Facebook and Instagram today. As per the reports, both the social network platforms were partially down for almost everyone. Though, the platforms were opening, but it looks like users weren’t able to send or receive messages, and post the new content.
According to users, Messenger app was working fine on the mobile devices, while the desktop version was sucking, and unable to load properly. On the other hand Instagram was even worse – posts weren’t loading, Instagram Stories were completely down, and even direct messages as well as the button to post new content weren’t working. Not just this, even Facebook’s ad section was not working properly, leading to an internal error when someone tried to buy an ad.
A representative from DownDetector stated, “It looks like the outages are mainly in New England; Texas; Seattle, Washington; parts of Latin America, including Peru; the UK; India; and the Philippines. We’ve reached out to Facebook and Instagram to learn more.”
What’s interesting was that WhatsApp was the only Facebook property that was flawlessly working without any glitch or issues.
