According to DownDetector, issues first started cropping up on Facebook at around 8am ET. “We’re aware that some people are having trouble uploading or sending images, videos and other files on our apps.
Problems that appear to have started early Wednesday morning were still being reported as of the afternoon, with Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, Oculus, and Messenger all experiencing issues.
The first occurred back in March in an incident that Facebook later blamed on “a server configuration change. ” Facebook and its subsidiaries went down again about a month later, though the previous incident was much worse, with millions of reports on DownDetector.
We’re sorry for the trouble and are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible,” Facebook tweeted just after noon on Wednesday.
Two weeks ago, Instagram was bricked and experienced ongoing issues with refreshing feeds, loading profiles, and liking images.
