Users worldwide are experiencing issues connecting to Facebook and Instagram, both on the Web and via mobile apps.
It’s not clear what’s causing the outage, which first occurred around 1:10am ET. However, Facebook-owned mobile messaging service WhatsApp is running as usual.
It is pertinent to mention here that the last instance of Facebook going down was back in Sep, when the social network went down twice that month. The most recent outage lasted about 15 minutes.
