Social media apps Facebook, Instagram and Messenger are back online after earlier international outage

Facebook, Instagram and Messenger services are coming back after outages took apps out of service for some users around the world, following similar incidents that hit billions of dollars last month.

It is not known what is the cause of the problem at this point.

So far, this is not believed to have seriously affected Australian users.

After acknowledging the problem on Twitter, Instagram confirmed that its services were back up and running.

“And we’re back! The issue has been resolved, so if you had issues with DMs earlier, you should be fine now,” the Instagram social team said.

“Thanks for being with us! “

WA Police released 12 seconds of body camera footage showing the moment little Cleo was taken out of the house where she was found.

Messenger also released an update, saying things were slowly improving.

“We are slowly but surely getting things back on track,” they wrote.

“Thank you for supporting with us and we are sorry for the wait.”
