[UPDATE] Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp appear to be down again

[ UPDATE 19/02/2021 11:20 ] Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp appears to be up and running normally. We are able to send and receive WhatsApp messages without any issues.


If you’re having problem accessing Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp, you’re not alone. It seems to be yet another worldwide outage as users have been reporting issues with the popular social media platforms under Facebook.

According to Downdetector, there’s a spike of complaints reported for Facebook, Instagram, Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp in the past 30 minutes.

At the time of writing, our WhatsApp appears to have intermittent connection issues and we couldn’t load our feed on both Facebook and Instagram. Users have also complained about the issue on Twitter.

This isn’t the first time Facebook faces a major outage. There were at least two incidents last year which brought down the 3 popular social media applications.

Are you having problems loading Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp at the moment? Let us know in the comments below.
