The Instagram account also asks users to “be patient”.

The reasons for the failure are still unknown. 

As a reminder, Facebook Inc also owns Instagram and WhatsApp.

20:36 The first versions of what was happening began to appear . For example, American freelance journalist and cybersecurity expert Brian Krebs tweeted that the DNS records that tell systems how to find Facebook.com or Instagram.com were removed from global routing tables this morning. “Can you imagine working on FB right now, when your email is no longer working and all your internal FB-based tools are not working either?” Krebs wrote. 

The reports of big problems on internal Facebook platforms were confirmed by The New York Times journalist Ryan Mack.

21:05 Not everything is going smoothly on the stock exchange either. NASDAQ fell more than 2.3% on reports of disruptions in the work of leading social networks, according to trading data, according to RIA Novosti. Shares of leading US IT companies are also falling.
