At around 17.35 today Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp suddenly stopped working. All three companies are owned by Facebook and it doesn’t look like this has happened before in history. Speaking to Cam, he said “Initially, we thought it was our internet at first but after ringing around several friends it became apparent that it was a universal issue” This is also not working on desktop as shown below.
Facebook has now started working but no luck with Instagram or Whatsapp. We are waiting for an official update from the platforms.
