If you were facing any problem with your Facebook, Instagram or Whatsapp, then you were definitely not alone. All three major social networking sites were temporarily down on Sunday in India and across the globe. While Facebook and Instagram were both inaccessible, with news feeds refusing to refresh and the main Facebook.com domain unavailable, WhatsApp messages weren't being sent or received. Several Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp users took witter to report the issues.
Downdetector.com, a site that monitors site outages, shows Facebook had been down since 6:30 a.m. EST in much of the world, with thousands of reported outages concentrated in the northeastern U.S., Europe and the Philippines.
Social media users across the globe expressed their concerns over the issue.
