Tech Talk: Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp suffer massive outages, yet again

Social networks Facebook and Instagram, as well as messaging service WhatsApp, were unavailable on Sunday for more than three hours.

BBC reported that thousands of people globally had complained about the Facebook-owned trio being down.

Facebook and Instagram were both inaccessible, with news feed refusing to refresh. Facebook users were presented with the message: “Something went wrong.” WhatsApp messages, on the other hand, were not being sent or received.

Users of these platforms went ahead to Twitter to share that they’re having issues.

Hours later the site said it had resolved the issue after some users “experienced trouble connecting” to the apps.
A spokesman for the company added: “We’re sorry for any inconvenience.” Facebook did not comment on the cause of the problem, or say how many users had been affected, the BBC report continued.

In March of this year, Facebook experienced one of its longest ever outages, with some users around the globe unable to access its site, as well as Instagram and WhatsApp, for more than 24 hours.
