You’re not alone: Facebook and Instagram users are reporting issues

"Images do not appear to be loading on Facebook for many", a Facebook spokesperson told CNN Business, on behalf of its other apps Instagram and WhatsApp. "We're working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and we apologize for any inconvenience".

We'll keep you posted if Facebook releases a statement regarding the current issues plaguing the site and its other properties.

Facebook say it is working to fix the problems "as quickly as possible".

According to, a real-time tracker cited by USA Today and Variety, users began reporting issues on Wednesday, between roughly 8 and 10 a.m.

Social media platforms apparently made a decision to take off for the holiday weekend a day early: Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Twitter all had problems Wednesday, according to CNN. While most users are able to send across text messages, the problem seems to be associated with downloading images. It's unclear what is causing them at this time.

Mostly, all Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, also owned by Facebook Inc., are facing issues in uploading photos on the respective social networks.

One month later, Facebook and Instagram experienced a similar issue and failed to load.

The company apologised for the inconvenience, tweeting: "We're now having some issues with DM delivery and notifications". Instead, users get a "download failed" message with a prompt to try again.

"The disruption appears to be related to an internal infrastructure or application issue", said ThousandEyes, a company that monitors internet traffic globally.
