From what we have found, while for some users both Instagram and Facebook are down, for other either of them are. Users are complaining about Instagram feeds not refreshing, and it is the same case with Facebook too.
Further, the issue seems to be mostly on the apps, and not on the desktop version.
For the majority, Facebook seems to be giving the problem. In fact, #FacebookDown has already become the top trend on Twitter.

BGR India has reached out to Facebook to understand why the services are down for many users. We will update the post as soon as we hear from the company.
