Facebook‘s most popular platforms, Facebook and Instagram went down last evening and the memes that followed took centre stage. Facebook’s family of apps experienced outages and the social media giant assured users that they were working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.
We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook’s family of apps, including Instagram. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible. #InstagramDown
