Both photo and social networking suffer from connectivity problems affecting thousands of users from different parts of the world. They do not have access to the services.
According to DownDetector, the fall in these applications has spread worldwide, particularly in the Scandinavian countries and the US east coast. However, it also affects the South Cone.
Many users report that when they visit the Facebook home page, a "service unavailable" message is displayed. And Instagram users see that the web service does not load even though it looks like the application works.
This is one of many of Instagram's downs in recent months since the departure of its founders after some quarrels with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Three days ago, Facebook suffered another decline in maintenance work.
Currently, the application has more than 800 million users worldwide. Facebook, on the other hand, brings together more than 2,240 million users around the world.
Possible causes of failure
This type of connection failure is very common and it is likely that this is a malfunction of a server. Other times, on the contrary, it is the result of a test of a new operation or, in extreme cases, of a cyberattack or a denial of service that causes the social network to collapse.
Instagram and Facebook holidays have a direct and significant impact on the internet. Billions of people have access to the Facebook family of products daily, which means that even the smallest problem can affect hundreds of millions of people.
