Instagram, Facebook down: Meta breaks news on X

Meta’s Facebook and Instagram portals suffered an outage on Tuesday morning with an executive of the company saying they are working to fix the problem.

"We're aware people are having trouble accessing our services. We are working on this now," Meta executive Andy Stone said on X.

Immediately after, X boss Elon Musk took a dig at Meta in a post.

"If you’re reading this post, it’s because our servers are working," he wrote.

Another X user wrote, "META using X to let their users know that Facebook and Instagram are down."

The outage came a day after Meta enabled a feature that allows users now to edit their direct messages on Instagram.

Together, both portals have more than 5 billion active users globally.
