Facebook and Instagram seem to be down, at the moment, but not entirely. As users reported, the two social networks, both owned by Facebook Inc., obviously, are presenting issues in showing pictures and more. Some other users are also saying that WhatsApp is also down in some regions of the world, people being unable to send messages and images, most importantly. Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp are reportedly down in Europe, the US, South America, and Japan.
Mostly, all Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, also owned by Facebook Inc., are facing issues in uploading photos on the respective social networks. Some users also reported that WhatsApp has difficulties in sending voice mails and messages. In the meanwhile, nothing seems wrong from Facebook’s point of view, as its “Platform Status” shows the “Healthy” status.
Some time ago, all Facebook Inc.’s platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp collapsed and remained down for hours, even 24 or 48 hours in some regions of the globe.

“As a result of a server configuration change, many people had trouble accessing our apps and services. We’ve now resolved the issues and our systems are recovering. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate everyone’s patience,” stated Facebook Inc., during the previous outage of its services.
The Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp outage of March 2019 was the most significant one in the recent history of the Internet. “By duration, this is by far the largest outage we have seen since the launch of Downdetector in 2012. Our systems processed about 7.5 million problem reports from end-users over the course of this incident. Never before have we such a large scale outage,” explained Tom Sanders in March.
Now, the situation seems to happen once again, as Facebook and Instagram are facing issues, while WhatsApp is also unable to deliver photos, voice mails, and even messages in some regions across Europe, the US, South America, and Japan.
