(Reuters) – Thousands of U.S. users across Meta Platforms’ social media offerings Instagram and Facebook (NASDAQ:), and messaging app WhatsApp reported outages on Monday, according to Downdetector.com.
As many as 13,000 users reported issues with accessing Instagram, while around 5,400 and 1,870 users faced outages on Facebook and WhatsApp, respectively.
Downdetector tracks outages by collating status reports from a number of sources including user-submitted errors on its platform. The outage could have affected a larger number of users.
Meta did not immediately respond to a Reuters query on the outages.
