Prolonged fall of WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram 1:00
(CNN Spanish) – WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram have flaws at this time in several countries.
The outage tracking site Down Detector logged tens of thousands of reports for each of the services. The Facebook site itself was not loading at all for about an hour on Monday; Instagram and WhatsApp were accessible, but they couldn’t upload new content or send messages.
On Twitter, #WhatsApp, #Instagramdown and #Zuckerberg are already trending, by the creator of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg.
Facebook owns Instagram and WhatsApp.
“We are aware that some people have problems accessing our applications and products,” Facebook said on Twitter. “We are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience.”
The reason for the interruption was not immediately clear. A company spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CNN Business.
It’s not a good day for Facebook
Monday’s Facebook shares are on track to their worst day since October 30 last year.
Shares of the tech giant are currently down 5.5% following accusations by a whistleblower that the company prioritized profits over the public good.
Tech stocks, including Facebook, are leading broader losses on Wall Street. The Dow Jones was down more than 350 points, or 1.1%, at noon. The S&P 500 was down 1.5%. The high-tech Nasdaq Composite fell the most, down 2.4%.
