FB, IG & WhatsApp Are Experiencing A Global Outage So There Goes Yr Tuesday Doom-Scrolling Plans

Kiss your Tuesday doom-scrolling plans goodbye because sadly that just won’t be an option today, as Facebook, Instagram and even messenger app WhatsApp are down and out.

All three social tools are experiencing outages and believe me when I say the world is in a bloody panic.

The folks behind FB (who also own Insta and WhatApp) made a statement on Twitter, a.k.a. one of the only social media apps that managed to survive the tech shitstorm.

“We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products,” Facebook said on Twitter.

“We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologise for any inconvenience.”

On Twitter, Facebook policy communications director Andy Stone said the company was aware of the reported problems and “working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible”.

As for Instagram, their official comms Twitter wrote: “Instagram and friends are having a little bit of a hard time right now, and you may be having issues using them. Bear with us, we’re on it! #instagramdown.”

The official WhatsApp Twitter also made a statement, writing: “We’re aware that some people are experiencing issues with WhatsApp at the moment. We’re working to get things back to normal and will send an update here as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience!”
