Users of social media platforms Facebook and Instagram seem to be facing technical glitches and an outage across the world on Wednesday night (3 July). Messaging app WhatsApp too faced technical glitches, with users reporting issues on the platform as well.
Media reports state that users in Europe, the US, South America, Japan, and India are the ones most affected by this outage.
Facebook took to Twitter to address these technical issues:
We’re aware that some people are having trouble uploading or sending images, videos and other files on our apps. We're sorry for the trouble and are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible. #facebookdown

In India, the problem across these platforms seems to be around sharing and transferring of any form of media, including audio clips and images. However, some users in India are also reporting that they are unable to load Stories on Instagram.
