#FacebookDown: Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp aren’t working – and people are mad

Facebook said they were working on the issue

Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp users were upset on Wednesday as all three arms of Mark Zuckerberg’s social empire went down for most users.

Facebook users reported having trouble loading photos and videos, while Instagram users complained about not being able to load posts or stories, or post comments. WhatsApp users reported glitchy messaging.

In a statement, Facebook said it was “sorry for the trouble” and was working to fix things as soon possible.

Users took to Twitter, their one remaining social media network, to show their outrage.
