Facebook and Instagram, both under Meta’s umbrella, have suffered a widespread outage, leaving users unable to access the platforms. Users attempting to log in encountered error messages and were unable to refresh their feeds.

According to Downdetector, over 300,000 reports of outages were recorded for Facebook, with Instagram experiencing over 20,000 reports. The disruption has affected users across multiple countries.

Meta has been contacted for comment, but its own status page indicates that the products are operating normally, contradicting the widespread user experience.
