Earlier, Instagram users reported a crash in the application. Instagram did not work in the western and eastern parts of the USA, in the territory of Western Europe, namely in Ukraine, Romania, Italy, Spain, Greece, Austria, Poland, Germany and Great Britain. Problems with access to Facebook and Whatsapp have also been reported.
Note that this is not the first social media outage this week. A few days ago, the Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp experienced a massive disruption that was observed around the world. As a result of the outage, the fortune of the main owner of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, was reduced by almost $ 7 billion due to the fall of Facebook shares by more than 5%.
