In WhatsApp, images sent by recipients cannot be loaded or downloaded, with errors notifying users of the problem.
There’s a spike of complaints reported on downdetector.com for all three platforms (including Facebook Messenger) from across the globe, primarily in the US, South America, Japan, UK and central Europe.
Unconfirmed reports have put the blame on Facebook’s CDN going down.
Users have taken to Twitter to air their grouses about the outage.
This is the fourth major outage affecting Facebook’s social media platforms since November 2018. The biggest outage was in March where it affected millions of people. Downdetector processed about 7.5 million problem reports from end users over the course of the incident.
