Facebook and Instagram services interrupted, users unable to post or browse

Facebook, Instagram suffer worldwide outage

The outage appears to be affecting the Facebook owned Instagram, as well. Many of them used the microblogging service to figure out if it is happening for them only.

While some users couldn't upload pictures, like posts, or send messages, others said the website was working fine.

DownDetector, a United Kingdom site that collects reports of website crashes, said the issues started around the early afternoon (9.15pm, Singapore time).


Some users were told the website was undergoing "required maintenance" on Saturday afternoon as they attempted to log in. Instead they have encountered an error message. Instagram also faced the same issue with its we version.

Revealing she couldn't access her favourite photo sharing site, former Geordie Shore star, Vicky Pattison wrote: "Anyone else struggling to get on Instagram?". So, it isn't quite clear to us whether or not the issue went away.

Users around the world expressed their anger on micro-blogging site Twitter.
