If you can’t access Facebook, Instagram, Messenger or WhatsApp, you’re not alone. Starting at about 11:38 AM ET, Dowindetector Outage reports start a spike logging across four Facebook-owned services. A spokesman for the company, Andy Stone, said at 12:00 p.m. We contacted Facebook for more information about the breach.
It’s not clear how widespread the problem is, but DundeeTector alone shows more than 30,000 outage reports for Facebook, with another 20,000 linked to Instagram. Facebook has not yet given a deadline for whether it can resolve the issue.
