Reports from around the world indicate that Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are all experiencing a worldwide outage.

The reason isn’t immediately clear, and Facebook does not immediately comment.

Facebook’s website is not loading, and eventually reverts to “this site cannot be reached” messages, users say. WhatsApp and Instagram apps are loading, but not sending or receiving messages.

The massive outage is impacting potentially tens of millions of users, tracking sites show.

AFP reports that outage tracker Downdetector is showing outages in heavily populated areas like Washington and Paris.
