It’s not you WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram have suffered a drop globally. At the time of this writing, none of Mark Zuckerberg’s applications work in Spain and part of the world. As usual in this type of falls, the problem affects the content loading (publications, photos, comments …) and the sending of messages in the different media of each application. At the moment, none of the official channels have ruled on it, so the origin of the problem is unknown.
WhatsApp does not work: Facebook and Instagram join the fall
So is. In the Zuckerberg conglomerate it has suffered a new fall that affects practically all Spanish users. As we can see on the Downdetector.es website, the fall seems to have been limited to Europe, India and some Latin American countries. In fact, the main point is Central Europe, with countries like Germany, Poland and Belgium.
If we stick to the problems of the different applications, the consequences are very similar to those reported a few months ago. Instagram, for example, is unable to load the app feed, with a pop-up message that reads “Cannot update news”. This problem is also present when loading the Instagram stories, with a message practically identical to the one we just mentioned. We also cannot comment on posts or send private messages to other users, according to recent reports.
These same problems are present in Facebook, both in the web version and in the application for Android and iOS. The loading of the feed is inoperative, as well as the publication of states, comments or messages in the different rooms of the application and Facebook Messenger.
As for WhatsApp, the application is unable to load new messages from conversations. As expected, the sending of messages is totally blocked, as well as the sending of any multimedia element. According to some reports, it seems that the state of the servers is slowly being restored. Unfortunately, the loading problems with Facebook and Instagram persist, as we have seen from the newsroom. We will update the article when there is an official announcement from the company or the service is restored.
