Facebook and Instagram Outage Worldwide Tens of Thousands Affected

Meta’s Facebook, Instagram, and Threads are facing widespread outages affecting tens of thousands of users, with reports emerging on DownDetector.com around 10 a.m. ET. Both Facebook and Threads are notably impacted, refusing to load for many users, and Instagram feeds are failing to refresh for some. Users encounter difficulties logging into Facebook.

This outage echoes a major incident in 2021, lasting over six hours, attributed to “configuration changes on backbone routers,” as stated by Meta (formerly Facebook).

Furthermore, Meta acknowledges “major disruptions” in various services like Meta Admin Center, Facebook login, WhatsApp Business API, and Marketing API. The exact timeline for resolving these outages remains uncertain.
