Facebook explains why Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram users faces diffulty

Facebook, Instagram, and the Messenger app were hit by a sudden technical failure on Thursday evening, hitting different parts of the world.

WhatsApp, owned by Facebook, remained to function, as usual, the paper said. The Facebook page on Twitter has yet to comment.

Messenger messages, meanwhile, simply sit indefinitely in a not-quite-sent state, therefore if you’re using messenger to work out who’s bringing what to Thanksgiving dinner, you would possibly need to change platforms for a bit.

An abrupt influx of Down Detector user reports suggests that the outage started at roughly 6 AM Pacific.
