Instagram Service Down

#Instagramdown Instagram Not Working

Facebook services are down for the majority of users. Several users have taken to Twitter to report an outage on these platforms. At the time of writing this article, all three services were showing an error that is refreshing. While WhatsApp isn't sending or receiving messages, Instagram shows "couldn't refresh the feed." Similarly, the Facebook page takes forever to load.

As per Downdetector data, WhatsApp users are reporting issues in the app as well as sending messages. The Downdetector website shows almost 9,000 crash reports for WhatsApp.

Talking about Instagram, Downdetector, the website that tracks services and websites, shows that there are roughly 8,000 users who reported issues. The issue is said to be around server connection. Similarly, the Facebook service outage was reported by approximately 4,000 people on Downdetector and the service claims issue related to the website, app, and server connection.

While it may be too early to say, this seems to be an issue around the DNS server down. The refresh request submitted to Facebook or Instagram on the website or app comes out as a timeout. We will wait to hear from Facebook about the outage and will update the copy.

Another Facebook property, Messenger, is also down, as confirmed by Downdetector. Similar to Instagram, Messenger users won't be able to send or receive messages.
Facebook is currently experiencing an outage impacting its family of sites including WhatsApp and Instagram.

Most Facebook users are seeing an error message that says ‘This site can’t be reached.’ On Instagram, the error message shows as a 5xx Server Error message.

The outage is impacting users on both desktop and mobile.

“We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products,” Andy Stone, policy communications manager at Facebook, tweeted. “We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience.”

Facebook Messenger and Oculus are also experiencing outages.
