Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp were down across the world on Wednesday with users unable to gain full access to their social media activities. Users all three social media platforms, owned by Facebook, complained of limited access to their accounts.
On Facebook, while users were able to check activities on their timelines, they could not upload photos. Instagram too suffered from similar outage as users could not upload their posts.
As for WhatsApp, while text messages could be exchanged, users encountered problems in sending or receiving images and videos.
Users took to Facebook’s rival platform Twitter to share their ‘woes.’ Hashtags such as #InstagramDown, #FacebookDown and #WhatsAppDown became top international trends on Twitter in no time.

*disconnects from Wi-Fi*
*reconnects to Wi-Fi*

Last time all three platforms owned by Facebook were down was in March this year. The company had blamed the server for the outage that lasted several hours.
