Having issue with Facebook, Instagram or WhatsApp? Cannot see photos? Don’t worry! It’s not your internet connection!
Many users in parts of the world including Singapore, Malta, Manila and the United States are unable to access some of the apps’ functions.
According to the website Down Detector, Facebook users in the US and the United Kingdom were among the heaviest hit. In Asia, Singapore and Manila reported the most disruptions.
As has become routine, users took to Twitter to vent their frustrations.
All the social media platforms affected are owned by California tech giant Facebook, which has not issued comment on the outage.
The apps suffered two similar outages this year… In March, Facebook suffered extended downtime with users around the globe unable to access their app for more than 24 hours. A month later, users again experienced difficulties in accessing the social media network as well as its messaging service, and reported issues such as not being able to load their newsfeed or send messages.
