Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp Suffer World-Wide Outage
UPDATE: As of Sunday 8:00 PM (USA Central) a check of Facebook’s Twitter account still shows no comment about this outage or any information about when they expect to have this issue resolved. ~TLB ed
Almost a month to the day after Facebook experienced its worst outage ever, Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp are again experiencing worldwide outages that started around 6:30 am Eastern, triggering a flurry of complaints on rival social networks like Twitter.
In areas around the world, Facebook and Instagram feeds wouldn’t refresh, and neither Whatsapp messages nor Facebook messenger messages could be sent or received.
During last month’s outage, it took more than a day for Facebook to finally resolve the issue. The company blamed a “server configuration change”, and apologized for the outages.
The outages appeared to affect a sizable swath of the US, as well as parts of Canada, Mexico and South America. Most of Europe was also impacted, according to an outage map. The outages for Instagram and Facebook appeared to mostly overlap…
…While the Whatsapp outages were worse outside the US, typically markets where Whatsapp is more popular.
Once again, Facebook’s stumble was a ‘win’ for Twitter…
Whatsapp is down
Facebook is down
Instagram is down
I heard it all on Twitter
FACEBOOK IS DOWN.
MESSENGER IS DOWN.
INSTAGRAM IS DOWN.
WHATSAPP IS DOWN.
… THIS BIRD APP STAY WINNING.

Facebook hasn’t released a statement on the outages or given any indication about when users can expect functionality to return.
In the mean time, it looks like people will need to suck it up and try actually talking to one another for a change.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
