The worldwide outage at Facebook and Instagram is "almost over", a Facebook spokesperson said to NU.nl on Thursday at 8 p.m. Both social media were troubled by problems in the preceding hours.
Thursday, in particular about Instagram, many reports were received by the Allestoringen.nl signaling service. Users complained that they could not log in or that their overview did not refresh.
"Earlier today, a problem in one of our software systems made it difficult for people to access Facebook's apps," said the Facebook spokesperson about the cause of the problems.
It is not clear when the problems will be resolved.
