Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram Users Hit By Outages

Facebook down for some users

Facebook down for some users

All 3 networking platforms, including Facebook Messenger, weren't loading as of Sunday morning.

In January, the Instagram app crashed while WhatsApp users worldwide were unable to send or receive messages.

Facebook and its subsidiaries Instagram and WhatsApp experienced widespread outages on Sunday for the second time in the past month (and the third time this year), with issues reported starting at around 11am BST and extending until around 2pm.

Downdetector.com's live outage map showed that the issues mainly cropped up in Europe.

A response from a Facebook representative reads, "Earlier today, some people may have experienced trouble connecting to the family of apps ..."

Facebook explained that they have resolved the issues and the systems are recovering after the problems.

The social media networks were back up and running in NY by 9.30.a.m, but irate users turned to Twitter to vent during the blackout.

"Ok... who broke #Facebook?" Dean Miller tweeted from NY. "In addition, the main Facebook.com domain is also seemingly unavailable", the report said.

Last month, Facebook's apps, including Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp, went down for almost a whole day throughout North America and Europe. "Supposedly Facebook, insta and WhatsApp are all down but couldn't care less about the other 2 just want my WhatsApp lol!"

Facebook will likely issue comments on the outage via its Twitter accounts, but it may be a while before those statements are published.
