Online outage tracker Down Detector has logged huge numbers of reports saying the apps aren’t working.

Not everyone is affected however, with some users able to use the apps with no issue whatsoever.

On Facebook Messenger, users are reporting issues with receiving messages.

And they’re also complaining about being unable to log in.

On Instagram, the bulk of complaints are linked to the News Feed, with a smattering of reports about Stories and Posting.

Users flocked to Twitter to moan about the outage.

“Is Messenger down for anyone else or is it my WiFi? Can’t see who’s active or send messages,” wrote one disgruntled user.

Another said: “First it’s Messenger down now it’s Instagram down with their DMs.”

And one shared an exasperated GIF with the message: “Me realising both social medias are down.”

Facebook’s official Service Status page says that the platform is “healthy”.

We’ve asked Facebook for comment and will update this story with any response.
