Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp DOWN: Apps crash for users across the UK

Several people have reported issues with Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp – which are all owned by Facebook   They’re some of the most popular social media apps in the world, but it seems that Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp have all crashed this afternoon.   According to DownDetector, the issues started at around 14:49 BST, and are affecting users across the UK and parts of the US.   The reason for the outage remains unclear, although 82% of those who reported problems with Instagram said the issue was with the News Feed, 11% with the website, and 6% with log-in. Facebook, which owns the three sites, is yet to comment on the issue.   Many users have taken to Twitter to vent their frustrations at the outage. One user wrote: “Oh yay. Instagram is down so my post is just floating in obscurity until it’s fixed.”   Another said: “Anyone else having problems uploading photos to facebook and instagram? I’ve been trying for the past 30mins and no luck…very awkward for work!”
