Since March, the well-known social media platforms Instagram and Facebook have gone down for thousands of global users. The tracking website Downdetector has reported that these websites are down for many internet users. This problem started in March when many complained that their accounts were being logged out automatically. As of now, it is known that more than 18 thousand complaints have been filed. A total of 59% of users are facing this problem, which is making things difficult for all. 34% of the users experienced server connection problems and 7% of users have faced issues regarding logging into the application.

Meta is trying to collect all the reports and trying to solve the problems. The internet monitoring company NetBlocks has provided the information through X, that these two applications are experiencing international outages. NetBlocks has shared ‘Meta platforms including Instagram and Facebook are currently experiencing international outages; incident not related to country-level internet disruptions or filtering #InstagramDown #FacebookDown’. Users of Facebook and Instagram have made various posts regarding this on X. One of them has said ‘Something went wrong. There’s an issue and the page could not be loaded.

Another user has stated they got a message saying ‘error loading media’. Thus, the users of these social media platforms are experiencing many problems currently. A user of Instagram said on X ‘Wait is Instagram down, I thought it was just me having internet issues?’ one user sarcastically said ‘How am I supposed to complain about my stomach hurting when Instagram is down’. Another person has said ‘I swear no other app goes down as much as Instagram’. One of the netizens said ‘I never realize how addicted I am to ig until I am in this situation again’. As NetBlocks made a post regarding the problem, a user said ‘May it be permanent’. There isn’t any solution as of now. Everyone is waiting for Meta to fix the problems and make it like the previous time.
