Facebook and Instagram suffer from failures – update

Nov

2018

Both Facebook and Instagram suffer from malfunctions on Tuesday afternoon, as a result of which both services can not be used by users, or only to a limited extent. The cause of the disturbances is unknown.

It seems to be a global failure, judging by the reports that Downdetector collects from users of Facebook and Instagram . Users complain that the services are down or that they are loading slowly.

For some users, Facebook indicates that the social network is down for maintenance and that it can be used again in a few minutes. With others, the service charges, but does not show the newsfeed, for example, or the loading is slow. At Instagram, some users experience, among other things, that logging in is not possible or that photos do not load.

The cause of the malfunctions has not been disclosed. Facebook is the parent company of Instagram. In 2012, the social network took over the photo sharing service.

Update, 17.12 : The interference with Instagram was short-lived, but Facebook seems to give problems to many users worldwide.
