Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp went offline for users across the globe, the social media giant said on Monday, as it worked on restoring its services.
We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

Reuters could not immediately confirm the issue affecting the services, but the error message on the webpage of Facebook Inc (FB.O) suggested a problem with Domain Name System (DNS).
