Facebook & Instagram are down for many users right now

Recommended Posts



Facebook and Instagram, two of the most popular social media platforms owned by Meta, are currently facing a global outage. Users worldwide were met with a “failure to load” message, indicating an unexpected downtime.


The outage reportedly began around 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time on March 6. Users reported being abruptly logged out of their accounts and were unable to log back in. The issue was not limited to just one platform; both Facebook and Instagram users encountered similar problems. The outage tracker website, DownDetector, showed a significant spike in reports of outages for both platforms.


The impact of this outage was felt globally, with thousands of reports flooding the internet. Users turned to other social media platforms to vent their frustrations. Despite the widespread disruption, Meta’s other platform, WhatsApp, seemed to be unaffected.


As of now, there has been no official word from Meta about the cause of the outage. This incident underscores the reliance of millions of users on these platforms for communication, business, and social interaction.


What are your thoughts on this incident? How did this outage impact you or your business? We’d love to hear your experiences and views on this topic.
