Facebook and Instagram were experiencing intermittent outages on Thanksgiving Day morning, forcing users to turn to other social media platforms.
Millions of users complained they were not able to access the apps ahead of Thanksgiving celebrations.
On its official Twitter account, Instagram said they are aware some people were having trouble accessing Facebook’s family of apps, including Instagram, and they were working to solve the issue.
Facebook resumed normality shortly before 7 a.m. (PST) but crashed again 45 minutes later. Shortly after that, connectivity was lost before another outage happened.
