The three systems, which all belong to the Mark Zuckerberg empire, are experiencing downtime, according to many reports on DownDetector. To name a few things, individuals report being not able to refill their feeds, blog post tales, or produce messages.
It continues to be unclear what’s triggering the issue, yet it appears to be influencing numerous areas across the world, including the United States East Coast, Central Europe, and also East Asia (and India). Oddly sufficient, the Instagram blackout appears to be mainly affecting Europe.
The problem appears to influence only some individuals. In Europe, where I’m based, Instagram is out, but I can still access Facebook. Our associates in India record being incapable to utilize Instagram, too.
Facebook has yet to acknowledge the server problems. Its official system status page suggests points are running efficiently and its solutions are all “healthy.” That’s clearly not the situation.
We’ve reached out to Facebook to discover what’s causing the concern, as well as will upgrade this piece appropriately if we listen to back.
In the meanwhile, discover another thing to amuse on your own with– perhaps Twitter or Reddit. That ought to be enjoyable also.
Update: Facebook has confirmed the downtime in an email to TNW. “We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook’s family of apps,” a spokesperson told us. “We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.”
Interestingly, it seems Spotify, Snapchat, and Costco are also dealing with server issues, which suggests the outage might be even wider.
