Instagram, Facebook, Messenger and WhatsApp seem to be experiencing a big blackout on October 4, 2021, in France and around the world. All Facebook group sites are inaccessible, as are smartphone applications.
Instagram, Facebook, Messenger and WhatsApp seem to have significant concerns on October 4, 2021, around 5:45 p.m., we noted in Numerama’s editorial staff.
None of the sites are able to operate at the time of this writing.
It should be noted that the social networks Instagram and Facebook and the Messenger and WhatsApp messengers all belong to the same group, Facebook.
If you are concerned or concerned, do not panic: you are far from being the only ones. On the downdetector site, where Internet users can report crashes and bugs, the four applications are overwhelmingly singled out as having problems.
Failures of this magnitude are quite rare. In less than 20 minutes, more than 12,000 people had reported a problem on Facebook on the French version of Downdetector, and 83,000 people on Downdetector US.
In view of the error messages which are displayed on the desktop versions of the sites concerned, it could be a question of DNS problems.
It appears that Facebook, Messenger and Instagram are having DNS issues

Instagram on smartphone does not work
On the mobile version of Instagram it is written that it is ” unable to update thread Of the home page, can we see when trying to refresh the main page.
Instagram bug also on computer (“5xx Server Error”)
On the desktop version of Instagram.com, a blank page appears, with a short message: “5xx Server Error”.
Facebook and Messenger are “inaccessible”
The facebook.com and messenger.com sites are “inaccessible”, we can see on the computer versions. On mobile apps, it’s a little more discreet: there is no error message like on Instagram, simply, the two applications just don’t seem to update at all, as if blocked at one point. “T”.
WhatsApp doesn’t work either
On WhatsApp messaging on mobile, we also see that a “connection” message appears, but turns in the void.
In the “web” version, the site https://web.whatsapp.com/ returns an error message: “This site is inaccessible. DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN ”.
