Yesterday (14th) due to server maintenance there were crashes reported in the social media sites Facebook and Instagram. Users were a given notification stating ‘Facebook will be back soon’.
Though the users were able to login, they were not able to upload pictures, adding statuses or altering particular pages were not working.
Similarly on Instagram same issues were reported but majority of users were not able to login.
According to the app downtracker, “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”.
Facebook in a statement said they are aware of issues faced by users and working on rectifying and instructed the users to refresh in a couple of hours.
