The social media apps are both down and not working with many thousands hit by the crash. The gremlins started at around 3:00pm today (Tuesday) with the outage still ongoing and no word on when it will be fixed.

Downdetector, which monitors outages across the globe, is showing over 90,000 reports of Facebook being down. Instagram stands at over 16,000 reports making this one of the biggest issues for Meta (which owns both of these platforms) in years. Whats app appears to unaffacted.
It’s unclear what is causing the problems but many Facebook and Instagram users have dashed to rival social site, X (formerly Twitter) to vent their anger.
