Facebook and Instagram are down for some users



Users report that various Meta applications are down, including Instagram and Facebook, but it isn’t a problem for all users.

Meta services appear to be down with outages centered around New York and California. Smaller outages around the country indicate it may be a server-side issue that should be resolved soon.

Reports of Instagram and Facebook outages appeared on Downdetector starting at about 7 p.m. EST. Threads also appears to be experiencing outages, but it didn’t show up in the tool until after 8 p.m. EST.

Reported outages have continued to rise since the issue began. AppleInsider staff report intermittent issues when attempting to access the affected Meta apps on iPhone.

Meta hasn’t released a statement about the outage. Expect services to be restored soon.
