Facebook And Instagram Global Outages Reported

Social media users flocked to Twitter to complain about the outage after finding that not only is Facebook down, but Instagram is too.

A similar message appeared to users on Instagram when trying to log in, saying, "We couldn't connect to Instagram.

We're working to resolve the issue as soon as possible".

This message says Facebook will be back in a few minutes, but the problems have persisted for a longer time.

Facebook and Instagram are partially down for many users around the world on Wednesday.

Meanwhile another user, Layla added: "i can not do anything on my instagram. send messages, like posts, even change my password! nothing is being refreshed or fixed please help. i'm scared i'm being hacked".

Facebook did not give an estimate for when they expect the problem to be resolved. "Facebook Workplace is our only channel for [communication] with the exception of email".

We're working to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

For our newsroom, the outage has been preventing any new posts to our Facebook page or responses to user comments.

"I figured this could happen eventually but it's extremely crippling to be part of this monopoly".

Instead, many took to Twitter to voice their displeasure and to try to find out what was going on. Individual users have been able to post sporadically throughout the outage.

Facebook Messenger is the social network's chatting client that is harnessed by users across the globe.
