Instant messaging app WhatsApp is experiencing a global outage, along with Instagram.
Users across the world have flooded Twitter with complaints about being unable to use the apps, which are both owned by Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook.
The outage seems to not have affected Facebook, however, but users said Facebook Messenger was also down.
