Some have reported issues with logging into the website. On Instagram, the Feed as well as Stories section is unable to new load images.

But a Facebook spokesperson said Wednesday evening that its problems were fixed.

In a statement, the company said, "During one of our routine maintenance operations, we triggered an issue that is making it hard for some people to upload or send photos and videos". We're sorry for any inconvenience, ' Instagram said in a tweet. He contributes to the site with tech news, but you will also see some updates on scientific breakthroughs regarding the biophysical environment or wildlife welfare. But with a user base this large such changes are not released in one go and rolled out of different sets of consumers gradually. Another added: "Not working". Some users, however, still reported failed messaging and image download issues. Similar bugs appeared to hit popular chat service WhatsApp. In April Facebook restored services after a three hour outage but it declined to give a reason. The outage stopped social-media images from loading and left in their place descriptions like: "image may contain: table, plant, flower, and outdoor" and "image may contain: tree, plant, sky". Hmmm, we thought, and we took to our trusty pal the World Wide Web, only to discover we weren't alone and some serious Facebook-related borkage was going on. There was no information coming in on what was happening and for how long it will last. Just before 5pm IST, Twitter's support account tweeted that it was "having some issues with DM delivery and notifications". No, we can't fix yours.

Last Friday, workplace chat application Slack suffered a major outage as users reported that messages were repeating and showing up several times after being sent.

"This CPU spike was caused by a bad software deploy that was rolled back. Did you try turning it off and back on again?" it wrote. "We're sorry for any inconvenience", Instagram posted on Twitter.
