Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp all appear to be down with thousands of users reporting a major outage.
The three social media giants are all experiencing problems in a global outage, according to DownDetector.
Social media users who tried to access Facebook received a message which read: “Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on it and will fix it as soon as we can.”
WhatsApp and Instagram users also reported problems with the messaging and photo-sharing apps.
More than 20,000 WhatsApp users reported issues using the global instant messaging service from about 4 pm UK time.
In a statement on Twitter, Facebook said: “We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products.
“We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience.
