Facebook down as users report Facebook Messenger features not working

A number of Facebook associated websites are being reported as down today, with thousands of reports coming in regarding Facebook Messenger being badly affected.

Messenger servers are reportedly not sending or receiving messages being sent from the desktop or mobile sites.

It’s unclear what has caused tonight’s issues or how long they might last. Reports of Facebook not working started coming in at around 10pm GMT, on June 15.

It should also be noted that this latest outage is not limited to Facebook users in the UK, with issues being reported in the United States and other parts of Europe.

Facebook and Facebook Messenger aren’t the only major apps running into issues tonight, with Instagram also facing problems.

One user reports: “Down in Pennsylvania. Can’t send or receive messages. Messenger won’t even open on my computer screen. It will only open in the app on my phone.”

Facebook Messenger appears to be the worst affected Facebook app, with others such as Whatsapp currently ranked as unaffected.
