KUALA LUMPUR: Keep calm and stop resetting your Internet connection. Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram appear to be suffering a worldwide outage. So you are not alone.
According to The Verge, the problem started about an hour and a half ago (6.30am ET).
Downdetector.com showed that over 9,000 reports have been logged in over the past hour with regard to problems at Facebook.
Its outage map indicated that Malaysia is among the countries facing problems getting on to Facebook, including parts of Indonesia and Singapore. Europe appears to be the most affected as well as the east coast of the United States.
All three social media and messaging platforms belong to Facebook and as at press time, they have yet to issue a statement on the matter.
Meanwhile, Twitter is working fine so you can still tweet about your frustration instead of having to keep it all bottled up inside.
NST earlier posted about the outage on Twitter which drew many comments, mostly hilarious remarks with regard to the three platforms being inaccessible.
Twitter user @ChainGangsta said, "How to tell all the three followers of my IG the dinner I'm having now if I can't post pic of the home-cooked telur dadar (omelette)."
Meanwhile Twitter user @kczvinx summarised his feelings in a gif of Gloria Stuart as Rose Dawson from the epic movie Titanic with the words "It's been 84 years" on it.
TalentCorp Malaysia also responded to NST's tweet, saying, "We will be back soon on Facebook & Instagram, everyone! Hang tight as the digital fairies fix things!"
