Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp back up after massive outage

Couldn’t load your Facebook or Instagram page Sunday morning? It wasn’t just you.

Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp were temporarily down for users worldwide early Sunday.

Thousands reported an outage with the social media outlets beginning around 6:30 a.m. ET, according to downdetector.com, with thousands of reported outages concentrated in the northeastern U.S., Europe and the Philippines.

The Facebook website was unreachable, while users on Instagram, which is also owned by Facebook, “couldn’t refresh feed” messages.

It appeared to be back up and running for most users by 9 a.m. EST.

The outage comes exactly a month after a widespread outage left Facebook services down for almost 24 hours. The company blamed a change it had made to its system for the outage.

There are more than 1.52 billion daily active Facebook users, according to the social media network’s website.

Similar to the past, social media users took to Twitter to voice their frustration or poke fun at the situation.
