Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram are down in a number of regions including India. According to downdetector, all of the three social media services owned by Facebook are facing outages globally. Many users have taken to Twitter to report that they have been unable to load any of the services.

The outages were reported worldwide. We tried using the services on our devices and found that one device upload stories to Instagram, one can’t download WhatsApp images and the other can’t access Facebook.

We saw similar outages for all three social media platforms back in March and April. The company took some time to fix the issues and had all the services running at full capacity under a day, however, it did cause users discomfort.

The services seem to have come back online now. Instagram has also shared a post on Twitter that it’s back working again.
