Snapchat and Instagram suffered a malfunction on Monday evening. Both in the United States and in Europe, users of the apps could not use social media.
Since 10 p.m., the Allestoringen.nl website has received more than 10,000 reports from people who were affected by the breakdown. The English variant Down Detector could even count on nearly fifty thousand reports.
It is unclear what caused the malfunction, but both apps seemed to work again around midnight.
