Consumers across the globe suffered problems as a result of a global outage of WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram. Millions of people lodged their complaints with famous social media networks regarding sudden outages.

Instagram, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger were down for people across the world, the Independent reported. Tens of thousands of users took to Twitter to complain about the outage, with #whatsappoutage trending in many countries, including India and Pakistan. The top two trends in Pakistan were #whatsappdown and #facebookdown.

The major outage was reported at around 17:30 GMT, according to Downdetector. However, shortly after 18:00 GMT, several Whatsapp users said on social media that they were able to again send messages on the app.
