Facebook and Instagram users on Wednesday were met with messages that the social media sites were down. Some users aren’t able to log into their accounts at all while others are experiencing limited functionality.
Facebook, which owns Instagram, has not released a press statement on what’s caused the outage or when sites will be restored. The following maintenance message is posted as users attempt to login:
Facebook is down for required maintenance right now, but you should be able to get back on within a few minutes. In the meantime, read more about why you’re seeing this message. Thanks for your patience as we improve the site.
“This usually means we’re making an improvement to the database your account is stored on. While this process won’t affect your account, you temporarily won’t be able to access the site.Keep in mind, we don’t do site maintenance on all accounts at the same time. It’s possible that your friends will be able to access the site while your account is still unavailable.”
As the social media platform scrambles to fix the problem, it reassured users via Twitter that it was resolving the issue promptly:
A change to the platform’s configuration caused outages on Facebook and Instagram in 2015 that lasted for 50 minutes.
In 2010 the platform experienced a 2.5-hour outage related to overwhelmed databases caches, and as a result, Facebook had to “stop all traffic to [a] database cluster, which meant turning off the site.” Facebook redesigned its platforms configuration system to avoid future problems.
Then, as now, social networkers turned to #facebookdown on Twitter to humorously voice their frustrations:
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.
WhatsApp appeared to be fine for many people, but users in Paraguay, India, Bangladesh, Argentina, and more note that they are experiencing issues with sending messages. DownDetector indicates that those in Brazil were experiencing the most severe outages.
We tested multiple accounts at The Verge, 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.
About an hour after users noted the outage, Facebook responded on Twitter. It also noted that “the issue is not related to a DDoS attack.”
