Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp all went down in major outage.
Onyxnewsng reports that WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook have began to come back online after being down for more than six hours in a huge outage.
The three apps – which are all owned by Facebook, and run on shared infrastructure – stopped working shortly before 5pm. Other related services, such as Facebook Messenger and Workplace, also stopped working.
Facebook and Instagram began working for users again at around 11pm, while WhatsApp started after then.
Recall earlier this year, the social media giant’s platforms unexpectedly went down due to a “network configuration issue”.
TikTok and Snapchat users have complained that the apps are slowing down amid the continued outage of Facebook companies.
Meanwhile, a message was sent by Facebook apologising for company outage
“To the huge community of people and businesses around the world who depend on us: we’re sorry. We’ve been working hard to restore access to our apps and services and are happy to report they are coming back online now. Thank you for bearing with us,” the company said in a statement posted on Micro blogging site, Twitter.
