Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram appear to be down with social media users venting the matter out on Twitter. Since 4 PM today (October 4th, 2021) I have been trying to send messages on WhatsApp all to no avail.
Normally, I thought this was just a WhatsApp problem and then I went over to Instagram but the case was the same. While I can view my personal uploads, I couldn’t refresh the feed.
Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram are Down – When will the issue be Resolved
On Facebook’s page, they simply left a message saying “Sorry. Something went wrong. We’re working on it and we’ll get it fixed as soon as we can.”
Down Detector also reported that Facebook was down, while another site that monitors a site’s online status said that users had reported problems with Instagram.
Both Instagram and WhatsApp are owned by Facebook, which has come under scrutiny in the US senate over its policies.
So far we have not seen announcements about the status of the three social media platforms on their official Twitter pages.
Twitter however is flooded with complaints on the matter, and it appears to be a global outage.
There is belief though that everything will be fine by Tomorrow but what can we do till then. Nothing, we just have to sit and wait.
