Glitch causes Facebook, Instagram & WhatsApp media issues

Users of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp have been reporting problems on Wednesday that affect their picture and video uploads.
Facebook acknowledged that a technical issue was causing problems for its users when they were sending media files on its platforms. The issue seems to have stemmed from something going awry during routine maintenance operations.

"During one of our routine maintenance operations, we triggered an issue that is making it difficult for some people to upload or send photos and videos," Facebook revealed.

After a similar issue hit Facebook services back in March, the firm said it was considering refunding paying advertisers for lost exposure due the glitch, but did not confirm the same consideration over this issue.
