Facebook, WhatsApp Hit By Photo Glitch

Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook have outages worldwide

Facebook says some users facing outage on its platforms

"Apologies for the inconvenience", Twitter said in a tweet.

According to user reports, the problems started at approximately 8 AM ET.

Many angered users posted on the rival platform Twitter to highlight the problem, which seems to be preventing images and videos from loading properly. Similar problems were faced on Facebook and Instagram.

Twitter was having "issues" too with direct messages and notifications.
