Facebook and Instagram down
Facebook and Instagram users in some parts of the United States, Europe and Canada were unable to access their accounts on Wednesday as the social networking website faced technical issues.
“We’re aware that some people are presently having trouble accessing Facebook and Instagram.
“We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible,” a Facebook spokesperson told Reuters.
Earlier in the day, DownDetector.com, which monitors outages, showed that there were over 12,000 incidents of people reporting issues with using the website.
“Fifty per cent of the people reported having trouble logging in while 40 per cent complained that they faced total blackout issues.
“While the remaining 10 per cent faced problems with pictures,’’ DownDetector.com said on its website report.
