Instagram & Facebook Experiencing Massive Outages on Thanksgiving Day

Well nothing is perfect, and lately that’s a strong statement for Facebook.

Millions of users across America and beyond are reporting outages on Thanksgiving morning. I also noticed this as I was unable to post to our Matt Couch and America First Pages on Facebook.

There were thousands of complaints about both social networks being down as of 10:30 a.m. ET, according to the tracking site Down Detector. 

Facebook (FB), which owns both platforms, acknowledged the problem.”We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook’s family of apps, including Instagram. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible,” a Facebook spokesperson told CNN Business.

Parts of Instagram appear to be affected, including the news feed being slow to refresh and trouble uploading pictures. Shopping on Instagram could also be potentially be disrupted just as stores launch their Black Friday sales.

The outage on Instagram sparked complaints on Twitter in response to Instagram’s Wednesday post about Thanksgiving.
