Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp Are Down

On Monday Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp all crashed causing social media users to vent on Twitter. ‘FB and IG’ are a trending topic on Twitter with over 62,000 tweets.

Facebook and Instagram users created memes about the ordeal, saying they are “patiently waiting for FB & IG” to work again. If you are a regular user of these platforms, then you know that is a struggle, and crashes like this happen often.

While no real reason for the outage was given, BBC reported that Facebook said “We are aware some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and apologize for any inconvenience.”

Our fingers are crossed that it’s up and running again soon.
