Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram are down

Facebook

One woman wrote: "Facebook and Instagram down, ok fair enough".

Thousands of users of the social networking sites, which are all owned by Facebook, have been experiencing problems since around 2pm UAE, according to software which monitors the sites.

The last major outage was on 14 March 2019 where Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Oculus platforms are down worldwide.

Moreover, WhatsApp users can't update their status, "sent message status" is pending, and everything is stuck at the moment.

Downdetector.com also showed that there were issues with WhatsApp and Instagram, but with relatively lower count of outage reports.

People have been unable to access the websites on PCs or laptops, and irate users have taken to rival Twitter to vent their annoyance.

The outage comes a month after Facebook experienced its worst every outage, which affected users for 24 hours. "Not good for those who do social media work, like me".
