Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp Down: Facebook’s services including WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram are currently down globally including India. This one looks like a massive outage, wherein users are not only able to receive messages, GIFs, media files and more but also unable to send messages. Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, and Messenger users are flooding the microblogging site Twitter and DownDetector with complaints on the massive outage.

As per some users, Facebook has put up a message on its official website stating, “Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on it and we’ll get it fixed as soon as we can.” Users have posted screenshots of the messages on Twitter.
The social media company has not officially shared the reason behind the outage but we expect it to be a server-side error that has caused all of the company’s services to crash. Notably, this isn’t the first time that Facebook’s servers have suffered such a big outage.
