If you have experienced issues with downloading images on any of three Facebook-owned platforms — Facebook, Whatsapp and Instagram, then you aren’t alone. For the entirety of yesterday’s night, there have been multiple reports from across the globe, on the users’ inability to download images across either of these three platforms.

The issue however, is now resolved. Both Facebook and independent users have confirmed that they are now able to download images and services are working as usual. Facebook confirmed the same via a tweet “Earlier today, some people and businesses experienced trouble uploading or sending images, videos and other files on our apps and platforms. The issue has since been resolved and we should be back at 100% for everyone. We’re sorry for any inconvenience.”

A rather lengthy downtime

Earlier yesterday, Facebook had confirmed via a tweet, that there are issues with its three main social networking services, and the company is working to resolve the same. The tweet read, “We’re aware that some people are having trouble uploading or sending images, videos or other files on our apps. We’re sorry for the trouble and are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.”

The issue started popping up on social media when users reported that were unable to download images and other content. While most users were able to send and receive messages, users from regions such as Scotland and Zimbabwe confirmed that the app had gone down completely in Europe and the US.

Its safe to say now, that the world has returned to ‘normalcy’.
