All is normal in the social media universe once again. WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram are back up after hours of delivering downloading errors and/or completely being out. The social media channels, all owned by Facebook, were unresponsive for most part of the evening on July 3. WhatsApp was not allowing users to download media files, while Facebook and Instagram were having difficulty loading new posts and content. Some even reported experiencing complete outage of the apps.

After several hours of the issues being reported, Facebook acknowledged them and started work on restoring the three services. The social media company has now said that all three services are back up and running 100%. However, the company has not revealed the cause for the disturbance.



Even though Facebook says it has restored the social media channels, some users are still reporting problems on Downdetector.com. Some say they are unable to log into their Instagram accounts and others are still unable to load videos on the platform. On Facebook too, some people are still reporting loading errors with posts, as well as the inability to create new posts. WhatsApp’s media download issues seem to have resolved completely though.

This is not the first time Facebook’s apps have suffered global outages and glitches. This happens all too frequently now, with users flocking to Twitter as a result of the problems.
