WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook and Facebook Messenger are down for many people right now, meaning you can't access the suite of Facebook-owned chat platforms.
"We're sorry, but something went wrong. Please try again," reads Instagram right now, whenever we try to access it. WhatsApp is similar with a 'Connecting' and circular icon near the top.
Instagram messages are in a perpetually state of “Sending” with no new messages going through among our Direct Messages.
