Are Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp ready for you right now? U.S. too! And a lot of other people too, it seems.
We are getting reports left and right of outages on all three Facebook properties, with no indication as to the cause. Everything is so difficult that Facebook’s server status page doesn’t even load to explain what’s going on. Some of the respective mobile apps appear to load, but only load cached data; refresh or try to fetch a new page, and things probably won’t load correctly.
When Facebook on the web Is load, it largely throws the following error message:
The outage comes weeks after the one that wiped out Instagram and WhatsApp in March.
(Update, 3:19 p.m .: It looks like things are coming back online, about an hour after the outage started.)
