“Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on it and we’ll get it fixed as soon as we can,” a message on the Facebook website said when trying to load.
Here’s how users reacted on Twitter:
On Monday, a tweet shared by Instagram said: “Instagram and friends are having a little bit of a hard time right now, and you may be having issues using them. Bear with us, we’re on it! #instagramdown”.
However, the services of Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger were restored after suffering a massive global outage due to a faulty configuration change that lasted almost six hours, affecting tens of millions of users worldwide.
The Facebook-owned platforms all crashed on Monday evening, blocking users from accessing their services.
All three services are owned by Facebook and could not be accessed over the web or on smartphone apps. WhatsApp users on both iPhone and Android could not make or receive phone or video calls or send text messages.
Earlier, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg apologised to those affected by the outage. “Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger are coming back online now. Sorry for the disruption today — I know how much you rely on our services to stay connected with the people you care about,” he posted on Facebook.
