Facebook, WhatsApp in major global outage

WhatsApp went down earlier this morning, as fans flooded rival social media sites saying the app isn't working. The live outage map by down detector shows that users are affected mostly in parts of the US, Malaysia, and Turkey.

According to traffic-monitoring website DownDetector, Facebook was the first to encounter problems at around 3:28pm [PST], followed by Instagram at 3:33pm and WhatsApp at 3:58pm.

It appears that Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram are suffering another outage.

Facebook blamed a "server configuration change", and apologized for the outages.

One Twitter user joked that it was time to relax now that the social media sites are down: "Seems like all socials owned by Zuckie are down".

Facebook recently suffered its longest outage ever on March 13, when some users around the world were unable to access the companies platforms for about 24 hours.

This is a developing story.
