No, it’s not just you: WhatsApp doesn’t work. And it’s not just the most used messaging app that is having problems. Both Instagram and Facebook They have also fallen, all in Spain. At this time, none of the three social networks can be used.

As reflected in the respective Downdetector pages of WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook, all 3 have been down. At the time of writing this article, the 3 social networks are having all kinds of problems; from messaging problems to the inability to upload images to Instagram.

This is by no means the only fall that the triad of Facebook applications has suffered in recent months. This past September we saw how Instagram fell again and at the beginning of the year, so did the 3 applications at the same time.

The problems started around 5:00 p.m., Spanish peninsular time. As we say, the errors that users find have been varied, depending on the applications. In WhatsApp, the application itself does not work well but what is most present is the inability to send messages.

On Facebook, the website does not load and neither does the feed principal. Exactly the same has happened on Instagram; not even the app nor the web page, and they do not load the images. Furthermore, the ruling is not limited to Spanish territory.

And is that the fall it has been worldwide. The three social networks seem to have fallen simultaneously all over the world, and although at the time of writing this article the official cause is not known, it has affected the three applications equally, as they are all under the Facebook umbrella.

In the absence of knowing the official cause of the problem, the only thing users can do is wait for the applications to recover. This could take several minutes, depending on the severity of the failure.
