Instagram, Facebook and Facebook Messenger are not working for many users this morning.

Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and Threads are down around the world this morning, with many people unable to log in to their accounts.

The website Down Detector is receiving tens of thousands of reports of issues with the social media sites from around the globe.

Most people are finding they have been logged out of their social media accounts and cannot log back in.

One reader told the Herald they had tried many times to log in to Facebook, even changing their password but to no avail. The issue was “very frustrating”, they said.

Numerous Newstalk ZB listeners have also called and texted to say they are experiencing problems.

Issues with the sites first started to be reported about 4am.

Meta trying to fix ‘major disruption’

Meta – which owns the platforms – posted on its company website at 4.17am warning of “major disruption”.

“We are aware of an issue impacting Facebook Login. Our engineering teams are actively looking to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.”

Meta’s head of communications, Andy Stone, also posted on X (formerly Twitter) that the company was aware of the issues and was working on them.

A London-based internet monitoring firm, Netblocks – which advocates for internet freedom – said there was no sign of “country-level internet disruptions or filtering”, according to AP.
