Facebook users face outage globally, Instagram also down for thousands of users

Mangalore Today News Network

New Delhi, May 15, 2024: It seems that popular social media apps like Facebook and Instagram are again down for many people. Hundreds of users in India reported issues accessing these apps earlier today, according to Down Detector. The popular social media platforms experienced significant disruptions, with users encountering problems loading pages and accessing features. This is a global outage and thousands of people have been affected by this if we go by social media.

Facebook- Instagram down

Many took to Twitter to express their frustration, noting that the platforms were either slow to load or completely unresponsive. The hashtags #FacebookDown and #InstagramDown quickly gained traction as users sought information and vented their concerns. If we go by the Down Detector site, it reveals that the impacted Facebook users have reported issues related to profile, uploading and website.

Instagram users, on the other hand, were having problems while trying to log into their accounts. Out of 600 reports, 66 percent of users had app-related issues and 26 percent were not able to access the web version of Instagram.

Facebook and Instagram have yet to release an official statement addressing the outages. The cause of the disruption remains unclear, and it is unknown how long it will take to resolve the issues. It is worth pointing out that this is not the first time that these social media apps have stopped working for a brief period, as this keeps happening every now or then. But, both the apps are now back up and working fine.

While some people were joking about the outage, others were getting worried after they were suddenly locked out of their accounts. Several users also started panicking as they thought that they were hacked or under some form of cyberattack. However, users calmed down when they got to know that the apps were suffering an outage and they had not been hacked.
