Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp down worldwide

Social media apps Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram are down for users worldwide.

Are you facing any issues with Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram? Either users couldn't access the platform, or their feeds refused to refresh.

A map on the site showed the UK, US and large areas of Europe are affected by the connection issues.

Facebook Inc, which owns and operates all three services, has yet to comment on the disruption. The desktop version of Facebook isn't working for some users in India, but the mobile app remains unaffected.

People took to Twitter to report the outages, with #WhatsAppDown, #InstagramDown and #FacebookDown trending in Pakistan and across the globe. It was one of Facebook's worst outages as it lasted many hours, which the social media giant had acknowledged on Twitter. Instagram outage issues have also hit parts of Asia.

Those trying to log in to Facebook are being met with a message to say the site can not be reached, while WhatsApp messages are either not sending, or delivering with a long delay.

Regulators, investigators and elected officials in the United States and elsewhere in the world have already been digging into the data sharing practices of Facebook, which has more than two billion users.
