Users from various parts of the world complained that social network is not working and they are unable to connect. Might be because of Thanks giving and Black Friday overwhelming deals causes this crash of messenger app.
However authorities admitted that the issue has been recorded and most probably due to some tech issue
Frustrated Messenger users from the US to the UK have reported that they are unable to access the service this afternoon.
Facebook’s main site also appears to be affected by the outage, though not as severely as the standalone chat app.
Facebook has confirmed the issue on Twitter, responding to users complaining about the issue.
In one tweet sent just after midnight this morning, Facebook wrote: “We’re aware of the issue and we’re working on a fix.”
However, a fix doesn’t seem to have been rolled out yet. There’s no new version of Facebook Messenger available to download on the Apple App Store or Android Google Play Store beyond v.170.
And users are still complaining well into the afternoon today.
In a statement given to The Sun, a Facebook spokesperson said: “We are aware of the issue and are working on a fix.”
