Facebook and Instagram restored after over 2-hour outage

Meta has resolved a “technical issue” that caused Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram to experience downtime. Users worldwide were unable to access these platforms for around two hours on Tuesday, encountering error messages and difficulties refreshing their feeds.

Meta has apologized for the inconvenience and stated that it resolved the problem as quickly as possible. The outages affected multiple countries, according to tracking website Downdetector.

Facebook, with three billion active monthly users, and Instagram, expected to reach 1.4 billion users worldwide later this year, are among the world’s most popular platforms owned by Meta. Threads, Meta’s rival to Twitter launched in 2023, also experienced outages. However, WhatsApp, another Meta-owned platform, was unaffected.

The largest outage Meta faced was in 2021, when founder Mark Zuckerberg apologized for the disruption caused by Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram services being down for almost six hours.
