Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram down for more than two hours
Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram were all down this Sunday morning for users worldwide. Facebook and Instagram were both inaccessible, with news feeds refusing to refresh and their domain www.facebook.com unavailable for more than two hours. WhatsApp messages were also unable to be sent or received. Messenger, Facebook’s chat service, was also down for more than two hours.
The outages appear to have started at around 6:30AM ET. Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp all started to come back online at around 9AM ET this morning.
Facebook’s issues come just a month after Facebook experienced its worst outage ever. Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram were all inaccessible for hours last month, and it wasn’t until over 24 hours later that Facebook finally gave the all clear. Facebook blamed a “server configuration change,” and apologized for the outages.
