Facebook, Instagram & WhatsApp Are Down Worldwide - TECH FOE

Facebook, Instagram & WhatsApp Are Down Worldwide

Facebook family apps; WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook are down worldwide. Users trying to access the social networks are either met with a really slow loading page or an error message.

According to downdetector, the Facebook owned social networks were down for over 4 hours ...in fact, services relying on Facebook servers for authentication suffered the outage.

"We're aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps. We're working to resolve the issue as soon possible," Facebook said, acknowledging the outage on Twitter.


While some users of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp weren't sure if the outage was due to an error from the server or an attack launched on the social networking services, Facebook however came out to calm the panic.

"We're focused on working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, but can confirm that the issue is not related to DDoS attack," Facebook said.
However, for the past hour, Facebook seems to have restored the issue as most regions around the world aren't experiencing the issue any more. Though, a few people are still complaining of not being able to access the social network sites, others a slow connection.

Most of those people who can now access Facebook can't make posts or update their status as any post or update that you make doesn't reflect or appear. Same goes with Facebook pages.

Update 00:13:57 CET:
The error has returned and users are left unable to access Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, with Instagram suffering heavily from the outage.
