Facebook is having some issues this evening, as its own website along with Instagram and WhatsApp, of which it owns are all offline. Facebook has said it is working on getting the issues resolved, but it hasn’t explained yet what the issue could be.
Downdetector is showing reports in the tens of thousands, with 35,000 currently showing. Due to Facebook owning Oculus too, this issue is affecting the services from them too.
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 apologize for any inconvenience.
