Facebook, Whatsapp and Instagram all down in major update

Published

WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook have all gone down in a major software update.

 

The three apps – which are all owned by Facebook, and run on shared infrastructure – all have completely stopped working.

 

Other products that are part of the same family of apps, such as Facebook Workplace, also stopped working.

 

Visitors to the Facebook website simply saw an error page or a message that their browser could not connect.

 

 

The WhatsApp and Instagram apps continued to work but did not show new content, including any message sent or received.

 

Meanwhile, Whatsapp has issued a statement confirming they are having a major update which is essentially causing the outage.

 

We’re aware that some people are experiencing issues with WhatsApp at the moment. We’re working to get things back to normal and will send an update here as soon as possible.

 

Thanks for your patience!

Facebook’s outages happen rarely but tend to be vast in their impact, not least because they affect three of the world’s biggest apps.

 

 

The company is often cryptic about the causes of any issue and does not tend to explain them even after they are fixed.

 

In 2019, for instance, it suffered its biggest outage in years – and said it had “triggered an issue” during “routine maintenance operations”.

 

In a leaked transcript published in The Verge in 2019, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg noted that such outages are a “big deal”. Any problem can often lead people to start using competitors and noted that it can take “months” to win back trust and get people back on Facebook’s platforms – if they come back at all.
