Meanwhile, some people are unable to send messages on WhatsApp.

Facebook has confirmed the outage. “We’re aware that some people are having trouble uploading or sending images, videos and other files on our apps. We’re sorry for the trouble and are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible. #facebookdown,” the company tweeted on July 3.

On Twitter, people are voicing outrage. #FacebookDown and #InstagramDown are the top trending hashtags on the social media site.

“Zuckerberg and his cohorts are not very smart, can’t seem to fix problem in short amount of time. Guess they are struggling,” wrote one person on Downdetector.com.

“Can’t load anything, can’t post an I live in Pennsylvania but u can’t look at anything can’t see any pics nothing can’t even load anything on Instagram either only thing that works is WhatsApp, the whole entire day,” wrote another.

Another person speculated: “July is the month that FB starts charging for pics. If you share one, the shared pic is only half price.”

“Can’t see any pictures. Not uploading it just stops midway!” said another.

Added one: “Guys it’s been over 4 hours and pics not showing and loading is slow or not loading at all. frustrated? could be more than that! phones are on fire!”

“Not all images are showing on Fb, Insta or WhatsApp. Just shows refresh arrow. Come on Facebook,” said another.

“Must be a sign that we all need to just abandon these social networks altogether,” one person opined.
