It’s Thanksgiving and it looks like Facebook’s servers couldn’t take the massive rise in Turkey pictures. According to Down Detector, both Facebook and Instagram are experiencing outage worldwide with WhatsApp lodging some random issues as well.
The outage seems to be affecting parts of the US, Europe and Asia and is affecting both Facebook and Instagram. At this point, Facebook hasn’t revealed any information about the outage but we expect them to share the details soon. Instagram, on the other hand, has turned to Twitter to confirm the outage.
We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook’s family of apps, including Instagram. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible. #InstagramDown

While you’re busy carving your Turkey, we will be monitoring the situation to ensure you’re updated as soon as the services are back live. In the meantime, why not try talking to your family and experience what we called life.
Update: The issue appears to have largely abated, though the service is not fully back to normal yet.
