Facebook and Instagram down around the world

Facebook & Instagram down in major outage

The feature has been specifically created to help with Facebook addiction, but also to enable users to better manage their social networking.

Users are also reporting that Instagram is also down.

#FacebookDown and #InstagramDown were trending worldwide on Twitter.

Facebook's Messenger app is reportedly down around the world on both desktop and mobile.

Users are seeing error messages, slow load times and issues connecting to Messenger.

"We know some people are having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps", Facebook said on its official Twitter handle around 9:00 p.m.

"The issue has since been resolved, we are back to 100% for everyone, and we're sorry for any inconvenience".

It looks like Facebook and Instagram are now down for some.

According to DownDetector, while the vast majority of users experiencing the outage located in the states and across Europe, users in South America and Asia are also experiencing downtime.

Problems appear to have started just before 1pm after a brief outage early this morning.

Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are back up after a 13-hour outage that affected some users throughout the world, the company confirmed.
