Meta Resolves Technical Glitch, Restores Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram Services After Two-Hour Outage

Meta has successfully addressed a “technical issue” responsible for the global outage of Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram, lasting approximately two hours on Tuesday. Hundreds of thousands of users worldwide faced difficulties accessing these platforms, encountering error messages and an inability to refresh their feeds.

The company, expressing regret for the inconvenience caused, assured users that it swiftly resolved the problem. Downdetector, a tracking website, indicated widespread outages affecting numerous countries.

Meta’s platforms rank among the most popular globally, with three billion monthly users on Facebook and an expected 1.4 billion on Instagram later this year. Despite Meta’s Threads, a Twitter competitor launched in 2023, also experiencing outages, WhatsApp, another Meta-owned platform, remained unaffected.

Notably, Meta’s most extensive outage occurred in 2021, prompting an apology from founder Mark Zuckerberg as Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram services were disrupted for almost six hours.
