Instagram and Facebook Outages Reported on Thanksgiving Day
You may not be able to post that heartfelt Thanksgiving message on Facebook or to share the photo of your turkey dinner on Instagram today.
Both Instagram and Facebook are experiencing outages on this Thanksgiving morning. Users across the country say they’re unable to access the apps on Thanksgiving. The outage appears to be intermittent as it is not affecting all users. However, we’ve seen several complaints about it.
A Facebook spokesperson told CNN that they’re aware of the issues this morning.
"We're aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook's family of apps, including Instagram. We're working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible," a Facebook spokesperson told CNN.com.
Facebook’s outages seem to be affecting the sending of messages and the general loading of your newsfeed. I've noticed that my Instagram newsfeed has been slow to refresh and it has given me an error on my account. The issues are affecting users across the globe, according to a report from the NY Post.
Additional details from Facebook regarding an estimated restoration were not made immediately clear.
