Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp working again after outages

Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp were all unavailable to thousands of users across the globe on Sunday.

Website Down Detector, which monitors outages, said there were more than 14,000 incidents of people reporting issues with Facebook at its peak.

Downdetector.com’s live outage map showed that the issues were mainly in Europe, and users reported that the three Facebook-owned services were down for more than three hours.

That's less than outage Facebook experienced in March, when users reported all three were inaccessible for more than 24 hours -- one of its longest outages.

Users on Sunday took to Twitter to complain about the outage, with one tweeting: “#facebook #instagram and #whatsapp are down so I guess I have to socialize with my friends now.”
