Facebook is down, as are Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp

On October 4, apps and websites for Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp were all down and unavailable during an apparent outage. It appears to have occurred around 11:45 a.m. Eastern Time.

On Facebook, an error page read: “Sorry, something went wrong. We are working on it and will fix it ASAP. Instagram and WhatsApp posted a “Server Error 5xx”. Facebook Messenger didn’t load a page at all.

Facebook displayed the following general error message.

Andy Stone, spokesperson for the Facebook company addressed the issue on Twitter.

A considerable amount of talk about the outage was also found on Twitter. Twitter has become a gathering place when various social media platforms go down. For example, there was the moment when TikTok went down in July 2021.

The case also sparked a number of humorous tweets.

Some Twitter users mentioned that Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp all crashed the day after a “60 minutes” report on Facebook and Instagram. However, there is no data yet to show that the outage is linked to recent news.

This story will be updated.
