Major social media giants, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are experiencing apparently worldwide outages, affecting billions of users around the world.

The sites Down Detector found that The social networks all stopped working around 11:30 a.m. ET Monday in major parts of the US and the outage has now been experienced all over the world.

Visits to Facebook site prompt message as “Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on it and we’ll get it fixed as soon as we can.”

Instagram and WhatsApp are not showing new or updated content. On Instagram, messages including “Couldn’t Refresh Feed” or  “5xx Server Error” appeared.

Facebook on its tweeter page in response to the problem tweeted: “We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience.”

WhatsApp too reached out to its users via Twitter to acknowledge the outage:

The outage comes after a whistleblower said that the world’s largest social network Facebook is prioritizing profits over users’ safety, and went on US television to reveal her identity after she leaked a trove of documents to authorities alleging the social media giant knew its products were fueling hate and harming children’s mental health.
