However, after a short suspension of the services of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp due to technical fault, the services got restored.

There were more than 1.2 million incidents of people reporting issues with Instagram, while over 23,000 users posting about issues with WhatsApp.

Facebook Inc's platforms including online messaging service WhatsApp and photo-sharing app Instagram were down for thousands of users, according to outage tracking website Downdetector.com.
