Just In: Major Social Media Platforms Malfunction

Thousands of social media users from across the world are currently unable to use platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. All of them have apparently crashed.

An attempt to refresh feed results to an error pop up message, “something went wrong” message or unable to refresh feed. And for those who had logged out, loging in is next to an impossibility

According to DownDetector, a real-time overview of issues and outages, it reported a spike in issues for all three major platforms just before 7pm East African time.

Till the time of this reporting, the management of the three sister-social media platforms which is American based was yet to clarify on the unforeseen outage.

It appears that several other services may be down as well, including many not related to Facebook. DownDetector shows a severe spike in outage reports for Snapchat, Twitter, Xbox Live, and several other services.

YouTube, Google, and Pokemon Go are also among the sites affected by current outages.

This experience is however not new since it has happened sometimes back.
