Facebook services are currently experiencing issues around the world, with users unable to access Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram.

When attempting to access Facebook services, users worldwide have stated that the application will display a continuous "Connecting" message. In BleepingComputer tests here in the USA and India, we confirmed the outage and are unable to connect to the messaging platforms.

According to reports, Messenger fails to connect with internet connection errors. On the other hand, WhatsApp is displaying a continuous "Connecting..." message.

According to DownDetector, Facebook services are currently experiencing an outage in the U.S, Asia, and other parts of the world.

It is not known if this is a planned maintenance activity or a problem with their servers.

At this time, Facebook has not provided any status updates. We will update this story with information as it becomes available.

That pretty strange, I guess I tend to be always lucky when this stuff happens.

I was in a call from work around 17h GMT+00.
