#Instagramdown and #Facebookdown started trending after the sites both stopped working and were not back online after almost 8 hours of outage.
Facebook and Instagram is down for several users across the globe for the last 8 hours.
A message showing to those affected suggests the problem is part of scheduled maintenance. Facebook’s own developer page, however, makes no reference to those issues. “Facebook will be back soon,” the message showing to users reads.
Not having two mediums to turn to, Netizens moved to Twitter, the micro-blogging site which was still up, and resorted to complaining about Facebook and Instagram being down.
As the global outage continued, Twitter soon filled up with memes and jokes about the websites not working, and the hashtags #Instagramdown and #Facebookdown started trending.
People started making memes out of the fact that developers weren’t working fast enough to get the sites back online.
Currently, the Facebook website and the apps are still down.
“Facebook is down for required maintenance right now, but you should be able to get back on within a few minutes. In the meantime, read more about why you’re seeing this message. Thanks for your patience as we improve the site,” a message on the website read.
