Hey there, did you catch the latest news? Facebook and Instagram, two of the most popular social media platforms, experienced a sudden outage on Tuesday night (5th March 2024). This wasn’t just a minor glitch – users were automatically logged out of their accounts and couldn’t log back in. The reason behind this unexpected outage is still under investigation.


The Outage

Facebook and Instagram, both owned by Meta, went down without warning, leaving millions of users unable to access their accounts. The issue wasn’t confined to a specific region – it was a global problem affecting users in India and other parts of the world.

User Reactions

The outage sparked a flurry of activity on other social media platforms. On X, the hashtag #facebookdown started trending as users flocked to share their experiences and voice their frustrations. Some users reported trouble loading Instagram and Facebook, while others found they could view old Instagram stories but couldn’t refresh their feeds for new content.

The Impact

The impact of the outage was significant. It’s estimated that around three and a half lakh users reported issues with Instagram, and approximately 3,53,000 users had problems accessing Facebook. This makes it one of the most substantial disruptions to social media services in 2024.

Meta’s Response

Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, acknowledged the issues and assured users that they were working to resolve them. However, they didn’t provide any clear information about what caused the outage or when the services would be fully restored.

What’s Next?

As of now, it’s unclear when the services will be back up and running. Users across the globe, including India, are eagerly awaiting updates and hoping for a swift resolution. This incident serves as a reminder of how integral these platforms have become in our daily lives and the disruption that can occur when they go down.
