Why Insta Facebook down globally: Meta 'working' to solve issue

Facebook and Instagram services experienced a widespread outage on Tuesday evening, affecting users in India and various other parts of the world. Many users reported being logged out of both platforms and encountering difficulties in refreshing pages. Some were prompted to change their passwords as well. The disruptions began around 8:30 pm on Tuesday, causing inconvenience to a large number of users.

According to outage tracking website Downdetector.com, Facebook and Instagram were down for tens of thousands of users, with over 300,000 reports of outages for Facebook and more than 20,000 reports for Instagram. Additionally, Meta Platforms' status dashboard indicated issues with the WhatsApp Business API, with approximately 200 reports of outages for WhatsApp.

Fortunately, services were restored by around 10 pm on Tuesday. Meta spokesperson Andy Stone acknowledged the problem, stating that they were working to resolve it. After services were back online, Stone apologized for the inconvenience caused by the technical issue.

Elon Musk, owner of X (formerly Twitter), took a jab at Meta in response to the outage, humorously implying that if users could see his post, it meant their servers were working.

Many users expressed concerns about hacking or cyber attacks during the outage. Some took to social media to share their experiences, with one user jokingly questioning if they were being hacked. Others admitted to changing their passwords multiple times out of fear of being targeted by hackers.

The outage prompted users to seek updates on alternative platforms, such as X, where they discussed the situation and speculated about the cause of the disruption. Despite the inconvenience, services were eventually restored, bringing relief to millions of users worldwide.
