Did you feel a tinge of conspiracy wash over you this morning? Thinking maybe you were being shadow banned by Facebook? You might have suddenly lost the ability to “like” posts, comment, or even share links. As it turns out this was happening across the entire Facebook and Instagram network, so it wasn’t just you.
Some users weren’t able to log on, getting messages that the site was down. The website DownDetector is still showing that Facebook is having issues. From the look of things it appears that the major issues were resolved in about 30-45 minutes. So for that short time, perhaps the world spent a little more time interacting in person.
The reaction when people have to use Twitter or speak to people face to face all because Facebook and Instagram is down at the same time 😂😂 pic.twitter.com/bBP1e5aR8r
