Meta’s social media platforms, including Instagram, Facebook, and Threads, have resumed normal operation following an outage that lasted for approximately two hours on Tuesday morning. Reports of the outage first emerged around 10 a.m. ET, with users experiencing difficulties accessing Facebook and Threads, according to data from DownDetector.com. While Instagram feeds failed to refresh for some users, others encountered issues accessing the app. The outage was resolved around 12 p.m. ET.

Meta spokesperson Andy Stone addressed the issue, attributing it to a technical glitch and apologizing for any inconvenience caused. The disruption coincided with the Super Tuesday presidential primaries in the U.S., posing challenges for political campaigns reliant on these platforms for voter outreach. The hashtags “#instagramdown” and “#facebookoutage” trended on social media platforms during the outage, with Meta’s stock experiencing a slight dip.

In addition to the social media platforms, Meta reported “major disruptions” across its Meta Admin Center, Facebook and Instagram Shops, and WhatsApp Business API. Services such as Ads Manager, Meta Business Suite, Facebook Login, Graph API, and Marketing API were gradually recovering from disruptions by 12 p.m. ET.

Meanwhile, Google’s YouTube acknowledged user-reported issues, including loading difficulties and errors while playing YouTube Shorts. The company directed users to its “Help Community” post for updates. Additionally, some users experienced delays in Gmail email delivery, although it remains unclear if these issues are related to Meta’s outages.

This incident follows a significant outage in 2021, when Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp were inaccessible for over six hours due to configuration changes on backbone routers, according to Meta.
