Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp working again after outages

The main Facebook.com domain was unavailable, with news feeds refusing to refresh on the platform as well as Instagram.

As the outage continued on Sunday, many users took to Twitter to complain while others joked about the situation.

It looks like Facebook services across the world are now affected by an outage.

Users reported widespread issues with the popular social media platforms, including a total blackout of the sites.

Social media apps Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram are down for users worldwide.

The company's March outage also impacted the wider Facebook product family, including Instagram and WhatsApp, and persisted for hours.

An email requesting comment about the outage was sent to Facebook by The Associated Press. Downdetector.com's live outage map showed that the issues were mainly in Europe, Asia and the US.

The hashtags #whatsappdown, #instagramdown and #facebookdown were all trending in South Africa on Sunday afternoon.

Facebook blamed a "server configuration change", and apologized for the outages. "The issue has since been resolved; we're sorry for any inconvenience", a Facebook spokesperson said.
