Facebook, Instagram, Oculus, And Whatsapp Are Down And Offline

On Monday, Facebook went down, as did all of their platforms such as Oculus, Whatsapp, and Instagram, for some users.

Downdetector shows close to 100,000 reports from around the globe of users experiencing the outage, and over 8,000 comments.

The apps which are all owned by Facebook, and run on shared infrastructure completely stopped working shortly before 12 pm. Other products that are part of the same family of apps, such as Facebook Workplace, also stopped working, according to reports.

Visitors to the Facebook page simply get an error page or a message that their browser could not connect.

WhatsApp and Instagram apps continue to work, but do not show new content, including any messages sent or received during the problems.

“We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products,” company spokesman Andy Stone wrote on Twitter Monday around 12 p.m. “We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience.”

Facebook has been the subject of controversy over the past few weeks following an investigation by The Wall Street Journal into documents leaked by a whistleblower showing the company’s inner workings.

We have reached out to Facebook to get an estimated time for the platforms to be back online and will update this story when details are released.
