According to Newsweek, Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram suffered major disruptions on Thursday, and images and video reports were not loaded, affecting users worldwide.
DownDetector is a platform for tracking website issues in real time, documenting the huge surge in some of the world’s largest social networking platforms. A large number of users expressed their frustration with mistakes and failures on Twitter – this is not the first major blackout this week.
These companies did not comment on the reasons behind these issues.
Interruptions on major social media platforms are unlikely to last long and should resume normal service soon.
