Facebook and Instagram back online after widespread outage

Facebook and Instagram back online after widespread outage

Facebook and Instagram went down on Wednesday, which meant people don't know where to go to be outraged, post photos of their food, or get their news from Russian hackers. Service began returning to users about 12:30 p.m.

On Twitter, many users from several countries said they were unable to even access Facebook.

According to the Facebook for developers status page, the status of the outage is "ongoing".

Facebook confirmed the outage, saying: "We're aware that some people are now having trouble accessing Facebook and Instagram".

The problem, which began to appear around 4pm United Kingdom time, did not impact all users, while others reported the site was simply slow or some features were taking longer than usual to load. Facebook says "We are now experiencing an increased level of API errors".

Facebook and Instagram tend to be fairly stable, but they don't have a ideal record.

The hashtag #facebookdown started trending on Twitter soon after the problem emerged.

Facebook and Instagram have yet to issue a statement.

New changes to Facebook are rolled out daily, however, the social media giant is still struggling to be online all of the time, the company probably needs another infrastructure upgrade.
