Facebook and Instagram restored after outages

Meta said it has fixed a “technical issue” that caused Facebook, Messenger and Instagram to go down. Hundreds of thousands of users around the world were left without access for about two hours on Tuesday.

When I tried to log in to a website or app, I received an error message and was unable to update my feed as usual. Mehta also apologized to those affected and said the issue was resolved as soon as possible. The outage affected multiple countries, according to tracking website Down Detector.

Meta’s platform is one of the most popular in the world. Facebook has 3 billion monthly active users, while Instagram is expected to reach 1.4 billion worldwide later this year. Twitter rival Threads, launched in 2023, also reported an outage.

WhatsApp (including Meta) was not affected. Meta experienced its biggest outage in 2021, with founder Mark Zuckerberg apologizing for the disruption he caused. During this time, Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram services were down for almost six hours.
