Once again, thousands of people reported connectivity issues with Facebook, Instagram and Messenger. Users from the U.S., Europe and Asia filed their complaints, implying a global outage issue.
Naturally, users flocked over to Twitter to post their rants and memes about the Facebook outage.
According to Mirror, Down Detector recorded over 2,000 users having problems with Instagram late Wednesday. The issues appeared intermittent and not a complete outage. This means some fans might have retained their connections to the server. However, a majority were still affected by the outage.
The issue included Messenger and Facebook. Eventually, users visiting the websites received error messages. Messenger, in particular, redirected users on a webpage saying the site was not working. Its operations came to a stop, which affected Instagram-Facebook messaging service. Users were unable to send Instagram DMs for that duration.

Ironically, Facebook already had a massive outage last month. Its services stopped for almost six hours, which affected billions of users around the world. The sudden disruption, reportedly caused by maintenance issues, was one of the worst outages recorded in Facebook history.
Facebook Up: Issue Resolved
Fortunately, at the time of writing, Facebook seemed to have resolved the issue in their systems. Although Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger are back online, they might not be working for other users yet. A few complaints were still spotted on Twitter about Instagram DMs not working.
For now, users are recommended to restart their app and device. If this does not reconnect the user to Facebook and its services, then users should consider contacting customer support.
