Reports of Facebook Being Down Started Pouring in Around 10 a.m.
In March, Facebook experienced its biggest outage in its history, one that impacted millions of users worldwide. Just before 5pm IST, Twitter's support account tweeted that it was "having some issues with DM delivery and notifications".
The latest problems come three weeks after Instagram had an outage that lasted more than two hours, on June 13.
The outage persisted through mid-day, with Facebook releasing a second statement regarding this glitch, where it apologized "for any inconvenience".
Facebook's developer site shows that the issue is being worked on as of five hours ago and says that a fix "will go out shortly". Doing so brings up an error message indicating that "Photo Can't Be Posted", according to users experiencing the problems.
We have reached out to Facebook for more details on the issues that caused the downtime, and we'll update the article if an answer is offered.
Some users noticed that the apps began showing what appear to be AI-generated captions of people's photos. Some users were unaffected while others were unable to connect to the service, or log in to the service once connected, or use Outlook without difficulties.
"We're aware that some people are now having trouble uploading images, videos and other files on our apps", a spokeswoman for Facebook said.
To reiterate, Facebook-owned WhatsApp has not officially said anything about the service being charged or banned.
