While most of the people were on holiday and opened their Facebook and Instagram apps to share Thanksgiving posts on Thursday morning, it seemed the social network was not able to cope up with the online traffic.
Thus, thousands of users complained about issues with Facebook and Instagram about problems with sharing posts and sending messages. According to Down Detector, a website that tracks such outages, there are error messages from Hanoi to Portland and the services seem to be affected across the world.
Twitter on the other side, is functioning without glitches. Thus, upset users of Facebook and Instagram are sharing memes and error messages on Twitter.
