Tech (MARKET NEWS) Facebook and Instagram Down Today for Required Maintenance.
So much for sharing those Thanksgiving photographs.
Facebook and Instagram appeared to encounter significant blackouts on Thursday, influencing a large number of users around the world.
Reports of Facebook going down start surfacing online just before 9 a.m., with in excess of 9,000 reports by 10 a.m., as indicated by the blackout report site Downdetector.com.
Among the areas effected by the disruption are East Coast, and West Coast, just as Texas, Chicago and Florida. outages were additionally reported in Mexico and all across South America and Europe.
“We’re mindful that a few people are right now experiencing difficulty getting to Facebook’s group of applications. We’re attempting to get things back to ordinary as fast as would be prudent,” a Facebook representative said in a statement.
Instagram was more effected, with in excess of 20,000 issues being report for at 10 a.m., as indicated by Downdetector.com.
“We’re mindful that a few people are at present experiencing difficulty getting to Facebook’s group of applications, including Instagram. We’re attempting to get things back to ordinary as fast as would be prudent,” Instagram tweeted at 10:40 a.m. Another Facebook representative said in a statement.
People took to Twitter to fuss — and joke — about the disruption.
Since Facebook and Instagram are down I’d like to remind you of two other traditional social networks that really shine on holidays. They are called the kitchen and outside.
