Instagram, Facebook, and Messenger down on Thankgiving!

Crashing Instagram, or Messenger?

Not able to load any feed or load page?

Or, some other app issues?

If that sounds more like you, I must assure you that you are not alone.

The Instagram app seems to have these maintenance issues these days which it later confirmed on its Twitter handle.

It said- “Many users are reporting that the apps appear to work but aren’t actually pulling anything new, instead just showing whatever they’ve got cached from before the servers went down. Others can’t even get the page to load.”

Be it a Shiv from India, or a Joe from Ireland, everyone faced issues on their Instagram and Messenger app this Thanksgiving.

To that end, TechCrunch reported that-
Many users are reporting that the apps appear to work but aren’t actually pulling anything new, instead of just showing whatever they’ve got cached from before the servers went down. Others can’t even get the page to load.

Even when I wanted to ask my friend about what they were going to buy on Thanksgiving this year, I observed that the messages on Instagram direct were stuck and didn’t reach the other end.

Moreover, the sudden influx in the Down Detector user report revealed that the outage started nearly at 6 AM pacific.

While some users were even not able to log in and facing some serious issues, it forced Instagram to take some sudden action and fixed the issues that it confirmed on its Twitter handle quoting-

“Gobble Gobble, we back! We apologize for the inconvenience and wish a #HappyThanksgiving for those who celebrate!”

Although most issues were sorted right after the outage took place on the platform, there were some number of users still complaining that they could access their accounts even after.

There seem to be no such announcements how long would it actually take for Instagram to solve each issue of those accounts, users are anxiously waiting for their accounts to return to the normal state!
