Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp were down for more than two hours

Photo by Amelia Holowaty Krales / The Verge Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp were all experiencing issues this morning for users worldwide.

Facebook and Instagram were both inaccessible, with news feeds refusing to refresh and the main Facebook.com domain unavailable for more than two hours.

WhatsApp messages were also unable to be sent or received, and users of Facebook’s main services (Facebook owns Instagram and WhatsApp) headed to Twitter to share that they were having issues.

The outages appear to have started at around 6:30AM ET this morning, and some locations were more widely affected than others.

“We’re working to resolve the issue as soon as possible.” Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp all started to come back online at around 9AM ET this morning.

Facebook blamed a “server configuration change,” and apologized for the outages.
