Facebook resolves day-long worldwide outages across Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger

Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook have outages worldwide

Unsurprisingly, some even complained to their mobile network or broadband provider thinking that it was a network performance issue. IT's been a frustrating start to the day for social media users around the world, with Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp all plagued with problems. Facebook acknowledged the widespread issue which prevailed across the US, Europe and parts of Asia for several hours. The same announcement was also made on the official Instagram account on Twitter.

'The issue has since been resolved and we should be back at 100% for everyone.

In addition to Facebook's photo issue, some social media users are also reporting trouble with two other popular apps - Instagram and WhatsApp.

Facebook has said the issue was triggered during a routine maintenance operation.

Woman charged after leaving waitress $7000 tip
Wolfe, the complaint alleges, initially denied making the charge but ultimately confessed and turned over her boyfriend's card. At that time, the server said she was grateful because she was in need of good news after putting her dog down.

Facebook users say they are having trouble logging in and accessing their feeds, as well as viewing or posting pictures. There, files appear to be running into problems sending - meaning that photos, videos and voice messages won't show up properly.

Facebook will no doubt be eager to have these problems solved before it begins in earnest and people want to share pictures and videos of firework displays and other celebrations. Interestingly, the aforementioned outages weren't only happening in the U.S. this week, but around the world as well. The first occurred back in March in an incident that Facebook later blamed on "a server configuration change". "We're working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible", a Facebook spokesperson told CNN Business, on behalf of its other apps Instagram and WhatsApp. The site noted a significant uptick in complaints and reports of users being unable to load pages.

Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, issued the same apology after users also experienced problems uploading or sending images and video.

It's not just Instagram, Facebook or WhatsApp that was the cause of the outrage.
