YEt again, Facebook and its group of apps are experiencing issues worldwide. Users are reporting that they’re unable to receive or download media over Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp.
This also means that Stories and Statuses, whatever you want to call them, are also not working on these platforms. Only the metadata is visible but the image gets failed to load.
Facebook has expressed this issue using Twitter. It claims that it is trying to get “things back to normal as quickly as possible.”
The issues started around 8 AM ET and now appear to be clearing up, according to DownDetector, which monitors website and app issues.
