Meta’s family of applications, which includes Facebook and Instagram, were experiencing major technical issues Tuesday, with thousands of users reporting glitches when accessing the social network platforms.

Users reported issues such as being logged out of Facebook and seeing an error message such as, “Something went wrong.” “Please try again.” According to monitoring firm Downdetector, fault reports increased just after 10:30 a.m. ET on Tuesday, March 5. As of 11 a.m., Downdetector had received over 500,000 mistake reports.

In addition, Instagram users complained that their feed would not update. The outage also affected Meta’s messaging platform and Threads, a Twitter-like service released last year.

At 10:52 a.m. ET, Meta spokesperson Andy Stone posted on X (previously Twitter): “We’re aware folks are experiencing problems accessing our services. “We are currently working on this.”

Elon Musk, the megabillionaire tech entrepreneur who owns X, took advantage of the downtime to mock his bigger social network competitor. “If you’re reading this post, it’s because our servers are working,” he said in the post.
