The services of Facebook and Instagram have been restored following an approximately one-hour outage.

Following an outage on Tuesday at around 3:30 pm, users of the social networking sites Facebook and Instagram were forced to check out.

However, after Meta, the platform’s proprietors announced they were attempting to restore services.

Channels Television’s checks revealed that users may now access the social media platforms and that services have been restored.

A spokeswoman for Meta, Andy Stone, wrote on X, “Earlier today, a technical issue caused people to have difficulty accessing some of our services.”

“We apologise for any inconvenience, and we fixed the issue as quickly as possible for everyone who was affected.”

Instagram users saw the message “Something went wrong” while Facebook users were shut out of the platform with a message that said, “The password that you’ve entered is incorrect.” The page could not load due to a problem.

With “Facebook and Instagram” and the hashtag #instagramdown among the top trends, millions of users reported the outage on X.

Upon visiting the Downdetector website, some users reported experiencing difficulties entering into Messenger, Instagram, and Facebook.

But Meta, the company that owns both platforms, promised that it was investigating the disruptions that also had an impact on Threads.

We’re aware that some users are encountering difficulties using our services. We are currently addressing this,” Andy stated in a post on X.

Launched in 2023, Threads was a rival to Twitter that also experienced problems, however Meta’s messaging service, WhatsApp, appeared to be unaffected.

In October 2021, Facebook experienced a similar outage that was ascribed to technical problems rather than a security breach as first thought.

Facebook’s advertiser-only status page stated during the peak of the incident on Tuesday that there were “major disruptions” to the site and that “engineering teams are actively looking to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.”

When attempting to log into Facebook, users were prompted to do so but were unable to do so with the correct password.

Users using mobile devices were not seeing their feeds refreshed on Instagram.

According to reports, customers were unable to log in to Meta’s virtual reality headsets due to issues with the device’s Horizon World platform.

Facebook boasts three billion monthly active users, making it the largest social media site globally.

As of the now, Instagram has 1.35 billion users worldwide.

Users were locked out of the Meta sites, which resulted in an increase in activity on X, formerly Twitter.

A jab at its competitor, X CEO Linda Yaccarino wrote, “Testing, testing… affirmative, everything is functioning smoothly here.
