Facebook, Instagram outage worldwide

Having problems logging into Facebook and Instagram or refreshing your news feed?

The outage affected users across the world, including Japan, Brazil, India, the majority of Europe and the United States.

In our tests, both Facebook and Instagram are seemingly up in South Africa.

It is not yet clear what has caused the outage, but both social networks are owned by the same company.

Multiple services, like Down Detector and Outage Report, have high numbers of users reporting the issues.

The hashtag #facebookdown was trending on Twitter on Wednesday evening. Many users suffering from the temporary disconnection are reacting to the outage on Twitter with witty responses.
