Facebook, Instagram and other Meta-owned social media platforms were affected by widespread outages on Tuesday morning, but the company says the issues have now been resolved.

Meta spokesperson Andy Stone confirmed the problems in a post on X, writing, “We’re aware people are having trouble accessing our services. We are working on this now.”

Messenger and Threads users also reported outages.

Outage monitoring site DownDetector showed the spike in outage reports for Meta services began around 10:00 a.m. ET, with Facebook and Messenger users mostly reporting login problems.

The majority of reports from Instagram and Threads users flagged that the apps were failing to load.

While Meta’s sites were down, X owner Elon Musk took to his social media platform to capitalize on its rival’s troubles.

“If you’re reading this post, it’s because our servers are working,” Musk wrote in his first post, following up with a meme poking fun at the Meta-owned apps.

Roughly an hour after acknowledging the issues, the Meta spokesperson issued a statement saying, “Earlier today, a technical issue caused people to have difficulty accessing some of our services. We resolved the issue as quickly as possible for everyone who was impacted, and we apologize for any inconvenience.”
