Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram down worldwide


WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook have all gone down in a major outage.

The three apps – which are owned by Facebook and run on shared infrastructure – all completely stopped working shortly before 5pm. Other products that are part of the same family of apps, such as Facebook Workplace, also stopped working.

Visitors to the Facebook website simply saw an error page or a message that their browser could not connect. The WhatsApp and Instagram apps continued to work, but did not show new content, including any messages sent or received during the problems.

Me: WhatsApp , Facebook and Instagram are down

Professor: That’s where Lusakatimes comes in


  1. Oh what a shame. Reminds me of our great politicians when at a dinner in China power went off said OH EVEN HERE YOU HAVE GOT ZESCO PROBLEMS.

  2. United Airlines Expands Routes To 40 Destinations In Southern Africa
    Flying to southern African countries will be easier through a newly announced United Airlines codeshare agreement with South African regional carrier Airlink.
    The new agreement, which is subject to government approval, will offer one stop connections from the U.S. to more than 40 destinations in Southern Africa. The list includes cities in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Botswana, Namibia, among others countries in the region.
    United will be the first airline to connect its loyalty program with Airlink, allowing MileagePlus members to earn and redeem miles when they travel on Airlink flights. This new partnership will be in addition to United’s existing partnership with Star Alliance member South African Airways.

  3. Never been on any of those. I have no idea what it is like to be down on Bookface or whatever those other things are called.
