Facebook, Instagram 'back at 100%' after glitchy day

That doesn't seem sooo bad

Facebook users reported that the issue was specific to certain features only.

The downdetector live outage map shows that users all over the world are having problems with the two social media platforms.

Facebook, Instagram, and Whatsapp were struck by an outage yesterday. Luckily for us, the issues have been resolved.

Facebook also experienced one of its longest outages to date in March, with Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp going offline for more than 24 hours.

Coming to the outage itself, Facebook has said, was due to a bug, which was accidentally triggered during a routine maintenance operation.

The apparent outage crippled the image-sending capacities of all three apps, though Facebook and WhatsApp seemed to be affected more than Instagram.

A Facebook spokesperson, also speaking on behalf of Instagram and WhatsApp, said that a "routine maintenance operation" accidentally triggered a bug that made it hard for users to upload or send photographs and videos, USA media reported.

Tottenham sign Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon for club-record £65m
The 25-year-old cost Wolves £13m from Monaco in January 2017 but struggled to establish himself in the Premier League last season. In 2017 Lyon took the player on loan before the clubs agreed on a permanent signing in the summer of 2018.

Both networks have had users experience problems with photos loading, messaging and more.

"The issue has since been resolved and we should be back at 100% for everyone", Facebook said around 5 p.m. PT. WhatsApp, more widely used outside of the states, is having its outages in small parts of South America, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands.

For now, social media users will have to patient and hopefully find out exactly when they can log back in and use their accounts normally. Hopefully there was a gardening tool in the photo - we've reached out to Abril but did not immediately hear back.

Facebook said it is aware of the issue and working to fix the issue.

Downdetector.com shows many users in the US and Europe are still experiencing issues with Twitter features.

Posts failed to load for Instagram's news feed and users also complained of file upload failure across IG and Whatsapp.
