Users were reporting problems accessing the platforms, including being logged out of Facebook after suddenly receiving a message “session expired.” According to the online monitoring service Downdetector, the issues began shortly after 7:30 a.m. Tuesday.  Instragram users are reportedly able to access their accounts, but unable to view their feeds or previous posts.

DownDetector showed more than 525,000 users had reported having problems as of 8:20 a.m. Facebook turned to X, formerly Twitter, on Tuesday morning to address the issue to its users, “We’re aware people are having trouble accessing our services. We are working on this now,” reads a statement from Meta spokesperson Andy Stone.
