Yes guys, Facebook and Instagram are having major outages and people are quite literally losing their minds.

Meta went down earlier this afternoon (5 March) and ever since, people have been rushing to X (formerly Twitter) to share their frenzied reactions.

One X user penned: “Is Meta down or am I being hacked? My Instagram isn’t loading and my Facebook is also ‘session logged out’.”

A second chimed in: “Is it just me or my Facebook got hacked? I got logged out of my account and I cant login back saying my password is wrong.”

At the time, Meta acknowledged the issues and said it is ‘working on this now’.

“We are aware of an issue impacting Facebook Login. Our engineering teams are actively looking to resolve the issue as quickly as possible,” a page on Meta’s website explained.

Today’s outages were first reported at about 3.30pm and, after around an hour or so, Meta was back up and running but everyone had one question on their minds: “What on earth is my password?”

Now everything is fixed 🤝 Meta
