Facebook and Instagram appear to be partially down for some users around the world today. While you can open both platforms, it looks like you can’t send or receive messages on either platform, and you can’t post new content either.
We tested multiple accounts and found that Messenger couldn’t load at all on desktop, although the mobile app was working. Instagram was worse: posts weren’t loading, Instagram Stories were down, and direct messages and the button to post new content were also not working. Facebook’s ad section was not functioning either, and it led to an internal error when you tried to buy an ad.
Instagram doesn’t allow many to even log in, GreaterLakewood can login but cannot add a new post or story.
It seems WhatsApp has not been affected.
It may be time to buy some twitter shares!
