Again, Facebook/Meta-owned platforms appear to be having issues. All of the concerns with the users have been addressed. As Gizmodo reported, a Meta spokesman contacted the site to deliver the following:

Today, some customers may have had issues using Workplace Chat, Instagram Direct Messaging as well as messaging services like Messenger. We made every effort to have the problem resolved as fast as possible for those affected. “We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused,” the company said in a statement.

Thousands of Facebook users reported being unable to use Messenger, Instagram’s messaging feature, and other Facebook-owned services on Wednesday, indicating that the company’s platforms are now experiencing problems.

Instagram, Facebook (now renamed “Meta”), and Messenger all saw an increase in complaints of accessibility issues about mid-afternoon EST, according to DownDetector.

Users took to Twitter to voice their discontent, as they often do.

As one Twitter user put it, “Kinda figured I broke my Messenger & Instagram inboxes till I googled ‘Messenger down’ on Twitter.” Others opted for the meme approach, such as this one:

According to Facebook, Messenger was offline. “It’s not your internet connection that’s the problem. We’re doing all we can to bring things back to normal as soon as possible. As of Wednesday, “#messengerdown,” Messenger’s official Twitter account posted.

An “Meta” spokesman verified to Gizmodo that the company is experiencing issues with its communications systems. According to their message, they sent:

Messenger, Workplace Chat, and Instagram DMs may not be accessible for some users,” the company said in a statement. Our goal is to restore service as fast as possible, and we apologize for any difficulty this may have caused,” stated a spokesman.

In October, a significant outage saw Facebook and its services vanish from the internet for the greater part of a day. BGP (Border Gateway Protocol), an obscure but critical routing protocol, was found to be the cause of the outage, which was later determined to be caused by a “faulty configuration modification.”
