On 4 October, Instagram, Facebook, Messenger, and WhatsApp experienced a major outage that affected users all over the globe. It appears to have been so serious, that Instagram is now testing in-app notifications to let you know when something is wrong.
As I believe all of you have noticed, Facebook was down for quite a lot of time yesterday. The outage was global, and Facebook took Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp down with it. The company acknowledged the issue, but didn’t give us the reason behind it. Now, after everything’s back to normal, Facebook has finally revealed what caused one of the worst outages in its history.
Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp have been hit by a global outage. The DIYP team noticed the issue earlier today, and Facebook has confirmed that it’s gone down for users across the globe.
