Are Facebook and Instagram down? Users rant on Twitter about crash

Facebook and Instagram are inexplicably down — and social media users really don’t know what to do with themselves other than complain and seek answers on Twitter.

Facebook error
In-browser error message, September 17

Both platforms were reported offline by DownDetector.com around 1:49 p.m. on Wednesday.

Users are taking to Twitter, still up-and-running, to share their grievances with the social media disruption.

“everyone opening twitter to check if their instagram is down too #instagramdown,” tweeted one user.

“That time again… #instagramdown and we all rush to check Twitter. And this time? Facebook is down too! #Facebookdown,” added another.

By 2:22 p.m., over 65,000 users had reported Instagram to DownDetector. As of 2:23, nearly 14,000 had logged Facebook’s error.

Both platforms are currently back online after the errors.

“Earlier today some people may have had trouble accessing our family of apps due to a network configuration change,” a Facebook company spokesperson told The Post. “This issue has since been resolved, and we apologize for any inconvenience.”
