After more than a million people reported problems with its photo-sharing app Instagram, Facebook Inc has corrected a technical issue that caused a global outage of its services.
The company’s online messaging services Whatsapp and Messenger were also affected, with #whatsappoutage trending on Twitter in many countries, including Pakistan.
According to a Facebook spokesman, the problem that prevented access to the company’s services had been resolved.
According to outage monitoring website Downdetector.com, over one million people had reported problems with Instagram, while nearly 20,000 people had reported problems with WhatsApp.
Downdetector collects status reports from a variety of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform, to track outages. It’s possible that the outages are affecting a greater number of people.
The Facebook-owned apps, which have more than three billion users worldwide, have experienced outages in the past, including one in July, which have sparked a slew of responses on other social media platforms.
