Global Outages With Facebook, Instagram & WhatsApp.

Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are down since 4:00pm this evening, with the three platforms confirming on Twitter that they are aware of certain issues and are working hard in an attempt to resolve them.

Facebook have tweeted: “We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologise for any inconvenience.”

Vodafone Ireland here in Tipperary was also down, and tweeted that it was experiencing technical issues and claiming, quote, “There is currently a global outage across several social media platforms. This is impacting our data network performance. We will continue to post updates as they become available. — Vodafone Ireland (@VodafoneIreland) October 4, 2021.

Vodafone has since corrected its issues, but downloads remains sluggish.

We understand that Facebook engineers have been sent to the company’s U.S. data centres to try and fix the problem, which means this outage, could be prolonged for sometime.
