BREAKING: Facebook and Instagram down as thousands of livid users report issues with social media apps

Instagram and Facebook are experiencing glitches, leaving thousands of users worldwide frustrated. DownDetector, a website that tracks outages, reported thousands of issues with Instagram at approximately 2.30am UK time today. An additional 100 people reported problems with the Facebook app itself. Users attempting to access Instagram were greeted with a message stating: “Something went wrong” and “there’s an issue and the page could not be loaded.” Internet monitoring group NetBlocks noted: “Note: Meta platforms including Instagram and Facebook are currently experiencing international outages; incident not related to country-level internet disruptions or filtering.” Users on Twitter have also reported difficulties with the apps. One user queried: “Anybody Else Instagram Down ? Mine isn’t working at all.” Another joked: “Is Instagram down or do I just go on it too much?” DownDetector shows more then 70% of users who have been reporting issues with Facebook are struggling to access the website itself. Howver, DownDetector also shows that most of the reported issues with Instagram are linked to problems with the app and server connection. On DownDetector, as of 3am, more than 16,000 users are reporting issues accessing Instagram. Instagram aficionados are hitting a wall with an error message stating “couldn’t refresh feed” as they log in. The apparent outage is leaving thousands of users in the lurch, unable to scroll through the app. One comment on DownDetector read: “Keeps crashing and scroll down the page to see about 4 comments then nothing just a blank page plus get a load of ‘follow’ these ads taking the mickey now.” [sic] Another commenter writes: “Can not switch from one profile to my business profile it keeps crashing on my phone, also when i’m on my pc i can not load photos, shar a post or anything i’ve reported this about 10 times and nothing has changed.” [sic] We’ll be bringing you the very latest updates, pictures and video on this breaking news story.
