UPDATE: As of 23:53 Indian Standard Time, the services appear to be coming online globally.
If you feel that your ‘social’ media life has come to a sudden halt, then you are not alone. Users worldwide are reporting incidents of facebook, instagram and messenger being down. Multiple down detector reports confirm the same. Instagram has confirmed the outage as well on Twitter.
Users have reported that while they are able to access apps, they are unable to view fresh content upon refresh. In Messenger, messages are largely staying idle and not getting delivered to the intended recipient.
We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook’s family of apps, including Instagram. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible. #InstagramDown
