  • The problems are reportedly affecting Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp 

Facebook and Instagram appear to be down across the UK with thousands of users logging issues accessing the social media sites.

According to DownDetector, more than 2,000 people have logged outages accessing Facebook since 8pm. More than 5,000 people have reported problems accessing Instagram.

There are also reports that Whatsapp is affected by the outage. 

Some users are reporting on Twitter that they are seeing system errors when they try and access their accounts, or navigate around the sites.

Meta owns Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp – but not Twitter, which has just been taken over by Elon Musk

Others say the sites are just timing out. Most are turning to Twitter to complain about the issues as it is not owned by Meta and seems unaffected.

One Facebook user said: ‘Open my account for me, Facebook… Every account we open gets blocked without any reason… and you don’t have any support… What is this nonsense?’
