Users Lament as Facebook and Instagram Shut Down

Users of popular social media platforms Facebook and Twitter have regretted the sites’ closure on Tuesday.

Our correspondent checked various Instagram and Facebook accounts and discovered that individuals were unable to access their accounts.

While Facebook needs existing users to log in to their accounts, Instagram user profiles and homepages could not be updated.

As a result, users of the social interaction platforms took to X to express their disappointment at the service’s shutdown.

An X user named Peace Ighodaro (@peace_igho) tweeted, “Who logged us out of Facebook ooo”

A New York-based user, Lidia Curanaj (@LidiaNews), tweeted “Facebook and Instagram down” while a social media influencer in the Philippines, @RealRazziebinx, tweeted, “Is it just me or Facebook logged me out? I guess the world is ending.. see you guys.”

@RaphealMiguel posted a picture of relief with the caption “Me after checking on Twitter that Meta is just down and I’m not hacked since my Instagram isn’t loading and my Facebook got “session logged out”. 😂

@Avviexo posted, “Anyone else’s #Facebook logged out? Can’t log back in, keeps saying session expired or unexpected error?”

Nigeria Sports photojournalist, @PoojaMedia also reacted on the shutdown saying, “Sessions of all Facebook accounts expired & everyone logged out. You have to log in again. Good luck if you still remember your passwords. 😭

Also, popular X user, @bod_republic, questioned, “Facebook and Instagram down?”

Meanwhile, as of the time of filling this report, neither Facebook nor Instagram owned by Mark Zuckerberg has reacted to the challenge faced by its users.
