Users are unable to access Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp in
several parts of the world. The commonality in all these applications is that all
the three applications are owned by Facebook and run on a shared infrastructure.
A message on the Facebook website read, “Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on it and
we’ll get it fixed as soon as we can,”
While Whatsapp tweeted from their
official account asking users to be patient, “We’re
aware that some people are experiencing issues with WhatsApp at the moment.
We’re working to get things back to normal and will send an update here as soon
as possible. Thanks for your patience!”
Several people flocked twitter with
memes and you can look at the best ones here –

Blasters, a professional soccer team which plays in the Indian Super League
participated in the meme fest.

shows the penguins from an animated movie saluting their boss. Twitter is being
