Facebook and Instagram down in the UAE and elsewhere in the world

Facebook Instagram Whats App down Huge outage leaves users waiting

That said, the only Facebook-owned app that is now not experiencing any problems is WhatsApp.

Some folks get a warning that says Facebook is doing "required maintenance" while others are getting a full on error message with the note, "We're working on getting this fixed as soon as we can".

Facebook and Instagram have been experiencing issues today.

We can confirm that Facebook's Workplace and Work Chat apps are also affected by this outage.

And there's probably some other underground social media network your kids aren't telling you about.

Facebook's sites and apps, including Instagram and WhatsApp, were experiencing outages globally for millions of users on Wednesday.

While the social networks homepage remains online, many users report difficulties in logging into the service or using the app.

Some joked that the lack of access to Facebook would deprive them of validation.
