Needless to say, users have been flooding rival social media sites like Twitter to express their disappointment.

One user writes: “Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp DOWN. I feel handless.”

Another posted: “FacebookDown – seems to be fairly catastrophic. Can’t even load the page to log in.”

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…. #whatsappdown #FacebookDown time to relax?”

“Please note that WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram are down at the moment worldwide and there is no issue with your internet connection :)” somebody else comments.

At the time of writing, Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram representatives are yet to acknowledge the outage on Twitter.
