Facebook Messenger Down, Not Loading, Not Sending (Fixed !)
Is Facebook Messenger down on iPhone or any other smartphone? Are messages not sending, not delivering and the FB Messenger app is stuck in the Connecting… status? The always spinning wheel is displayed? The cross-messaging platform is experiencing a serious worldwide downtime!
Facebook Messenger Down – October 4
Worldwide users are experiencing a problem with Facebook’s instant messaging app.
The issue started a couple of hours ago with messages not being able to be sent or delivered. Now, users aren’t even able to load the FB Messenger home screen or browse through conversations.
Update 1: The Facebook app isn’t working either!
Update 2: After almost 7 hours of downtime FB Messenger and the other Facebook apps seem to have returned back online! Can you confirm this at your end too? Use the comments section please!
The problem has been acknowledged by Facebook on Twitter:
Mercury in retrograde got the best of us. We’re working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible, and apologize for the inconvenience. #MessengerDown

Fact: The Facebook Messenger downtime is affecting all users iOS, Android as well as web users!
Update 1: Facebook seems to have some huge issues today. WhatsApp is also experiencing downtimes worldwide! The other highly popular Facebook-owned instant messaging app can’t send or receive messages and VoIP calls!
Update 2: Instagram is also down which makes all three Facebook-owned social media apps unavailable at the moment!
Facebook Down Worldwide
This issue is also occurring for the Facebook web browser interface. An attempt to load the Facebook homepage in Safari returns:
“Safari Can’t Find The Server
Safari can’t open the page https://www.facebook.com because Safari can’t find the server www.facebook.com”
Are you also affected by these Facebook issues? Has FB Messenger recovered at your end? What about WhatsApp or Instagram? Please use the comments section and share your updates. Also mention your location and smartphone model!

Hi ever since i upgraded to ios 15.0.1 on iphone 10 s max, cannot load facebook well and send messages via messenger.How do i solve this problem? I am in new zealand
Thanks for reporting! It’s a coincidence. The issue is not related to iOS 15.0.1. Facebook (Messenger), WhatsApp and Instagram are all experiencing a massive worldwide downtime that’s ongoing for more than 5 hours now. You only have to wait it out until Facebook gets its act together!
Patricia I have a problem can you please report it messenger app and it is the only app that I can’t reply fro m outside when i click on reply the message goes way please report
Hi Abood, I’m here to try to help you out. But please rewrite your question because it has too many typos and I can’t really understand what you mean. Thanks.
My Facebook and Messenger will not let me sign back in after deleting both apps and reinstalling. Says check my internet connection. My internet connection is working just fine. I’m in North Carolina.
None of Facebook’s apps are able to communicate and retrieve data from the servers. This is why log-ins can’t be authenticated either. We’re dealing with a massive and global Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp downtime:
Patricia the problem is that when I some one send me a message on messenger I want to reply from notofication ceneter not the app itself whenever i click on reply in the notidfication center the message goes and thats annoying please help me and report this problem hope you under stand
Got it now. Can you please mention if this happens on iPhone or iPad and for which iOS version? iOS 15.1? I will try to replicate it first.

Facebook and messenger are both not working on my iPhone13. This is the 3rd day now that both apps won’t work. You can have them installed but it won’t log in. Says network connection issue. All other apps work fine.
Thanks for reporting Vanessa. Is this happening on your personal phone or a work phone? If it’s a company phone, Facebook might be restricted by a configuration profile.
Did Facebook ever work on the iPhone 13? Or you just got it and are getting the network connection issue?
