WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram crash worldwide

Messaging Apps, WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook all crashed for users around the world on Monday evening leaving some three billion online users frustrated and unable to connect all over the world.

The three apps faced an outage of almost one hour during which users were unable to send or receive new messages, or refresh their feeds. The issue issue is affecting desktop, mobile phone and app users.

The social media platforms all share the same infrastructure and are owned by Facebook, which is owned by American billionaire Mark Zuckerberg.  

This is the second time the three social media platform will be down in 2021.

Users attempting to access Facebook on their browser have been shown a blank error page, while those using WhatsApp or Instagram mobile apps have been able to view existing content, but nothing new has loaded. 

Posting on Twitter, which has no issues, Facebook said it was aware of outages affecting "some people".

The firm said: "We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing Facebook app. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience."

WhatsApp also used Twitter to say that they were working on solving issues affecting their services.

The app tweeted: "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!" 

Instagram also confirmed through its official Twitter account that it is working on fixing the current issue.

People in Cyprus also experienced the crash which went out at about 6:30pm as they were unable to access the apps.
