Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger are down for many around the world

Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger are down for many around the world

As for Facebook, the app is working fine on our end but some users are reportedly facing issues in the UK.

The issues reportedly started at 2.15pm across the country, with millions experiencing problems with both sites.

'We're working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible'.

Thousands of Facebook and Instagram users are reporting outages across the United States and around the world, DownDetector says.

By 9 a.m. PT, it appeared posts were going through on Facebook and Instagram.

Instagram confirmed the outage on Thursday.

The two services are prone to frequent outages but Thursday's is especially problematic because people love sharing their holiday festivities.

A third declared: "Anyone else having trouble with Instagram or Facebook being down?" It is unclear whether or not the outage spread to Instagram, which also falls under Facebook's umbrella. For Instagram there is a particularly high concentration of reports in Western Europe, meanwhile, there seem to be more reports of Facebook outages in the U.S. than anywhere else.

The outage, which appears to be a worldwide problem, has been going on for about an hour now.
