Millions of Facebook and Instagram users had a hard time Friday night. At around 9:30 PM, a major failure started, which resulted in the main Meta services being unavailable – Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram all crashing. Fortunately, the unavailability of services did not last long – around 22:40 the failure ended.
Downdetector reports clearly show the scale of the problem – the number of failure reports is growing very fast, reaching thousands in a short time. Apart from Facebook itself, Messenger and Instagram have also stopped working. The crash affects both the desktop version and the mobile apps.

Users deprived of access to Meta sites commented: “There is no option to open the page”, “Our description did not rain:”, “Specifically dead”. Individual observations were confirmed by Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram report statistics. which are provided on an ongoing basis.

Update, hours. 10:40 PM
