Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp users were upset on Wednesday as all three arms of Mark Zuckerberg’s social empire went down for most users.
Facebook users reported having trouble loading photos and videos, while Instagram users complained about not being able to load posts or stories, or post comments. WhatsApp users reported glitchy messaging.
In a statement, Facebook said it was “sorry for the trouble” and was working to fix things as soon possible.
We’re aware that some people are having trouble uploading or sending images, videos and other files on our apps. We're sorry for the trouble and are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible. #facebookdown
