WhatsApp, Instagram and FB Messenger down? How to check
This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – A massive global internet outage is currently affecting the servers of most social media websites, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, all of which are down at the moment.
In recent months, all four services have suffered long outages, sometimes lasting hours. By “outage” or “outage” we mean the inability to access any of the sites and see your feed. Or it’s as simple as not being able to send or receive messages on the moon or the other platform or load anything.
When you encounter this, you may see an error message.
Error messages often vary. Sometimes Instagram will display a “5xx server error” or it is unable to refresh the feed, while Facebook will display a “Sorry, something went wrong” message. As for WhatsApp and Messenger, they will show a clock icon next to messages that are not delivered. When you see these indications it can be frustrating and you may be wondering when the services will be up and running again.
Fortunately, there is an easy way to check the status of these services to see if they are down or up. Just go to a site like Down Detector:
Down Detector works for all kinds of websites and services, so it’s a handy tool for adding bookmarks when you think something is wrong. We also recommend that you consult Twitter to see what others are going through and to search for official announcements from the companies themselves, but as at the moment, it’s also down, so Down Detector should be your best bet.
