It's not you, it's Facebook! The social media giant Facebook Inc., picture sharing platform Instagram, and its messaging sidekick Whatsapp all went down amid the outage. Millions of individual users, businesses, and agencies reported that they were unable to access these social media platforms, including some who went to Twitter to post.

Facebook is down error message
RELAX! You are not alone.

Many, including myself, might have noticed the website showed the following error message: “Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on it and we'll get it fixed as soon as we can.” Messages couldn't be sent or received on Whatsapp. Social media platforms were working to restore the services at the earliest.


These free social media platforms can have a big impact on your business revenue if you depend on its users. Here are simple ways you can stay future proof, with more details in the video below.



Globally, news outlets have been covering the issue with the tech giant company. Facebook is currently experiencing an outage impacting its family of sites, including WhatsApp and Instagram. Here is what Aljazeera has to say, in the video below.

As a result of the Facebook outage, the company's stock dropped by -5% in a single day within hours and losses around $5.9 billion in net worth. Many users rushed to Twitter to get updates, which resulted in Twitter's record for highest number of users on its platform at one time.

We will update this page as other results take place.
