Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger are all down, globally - again All major Facebook-owned properties, including WhatsApp, Facebook itself, Instagram and Messenger are down all over the world.
The problem seems to be worst in Asia, but reports also from South American countries and Europe are pouring to Twitter about the issue.

Uptime detection site, DownDetector shows that the problems started sometime around 11am UTC today and are currently ongoing.

For some users, at least in Europe, the services however seem to be working just fine. But some are experiencing problems when sending out WhatsApp messages or posting to Facebook.

I should hope so, it is the only way that i can contact some people.

I have another complaint that you have ignored for some weeks, it involves the timeline page, where Friends Posts are collected and lodged to save going through the whole of the Facebook to find Posts. I have not been able to Correct it myself, and i have sent numerous messages to your staff for assistance without response. The area Involved is on the Time Line Page, is a Block of 9 Shown Friends , about halfway down the Left Hand Margin, and is Named Friends, although as the photo icons change as Posts change, it is not normally the Same Photo Icons, this is more than an annoyance, it is a loss of communications, as sometimes there may be as many as Ten Posts in a day that i am missing.
