If you’ve been trying to send messages on WhatsApp but failing to do so, then you’re not alone. WhatsApp is down for several users globally. Additionally, Instagram is also down for several users, as per the Downdetector site.

At the time of writing this article, over 11,000 people registered issues with WhatsApp service on Downdetector while almost 12,000 people registered problems with Instagram.

This is not the first time that the applications which are owned by Mark have had this issue it comes just one month after Facebook experienced its worse ever outage – with both social networks and WhatsApp having issues for 24 hours.

Facebook later apologised and blamed a “server configuration change”.

They said in a statement today: “Earlier today, some people may have experienced trouble connecting to the family of apps.

“The issue has since been resolved; we’re sorry for any inconvenience.”

Could this be the problem?
