Facebook Messenger DOWN again – Popular app NOT WORKING as issues return for users
FACEBOOK MESSENGER is down again this morning as users face more issues sending and receiving messages with the popular app not working.
Facebook Messenger is down again for the second time in a week.
The popular app suffered a major outage last week with hundreds of users unable to access or send messages.Facebook fixed those issues fairly rapidly but it seems the gremlins have returned.
Messenger is currently down for some users with many unable to use the service.
Down Detector, an independent website that tracks social mentions around certain topics to detect outages across the world, has also seen hundreds of reports.
It seems the issues began around 11.15am this morning with users across the UK and Europe appearing hardest hit.
It’s currently unclear what is causing these new issues but there’s plenty of users expressing their dismay on social media.
One Messenger fan said: “I think Facebook messenger is down. Come on fix it quickly.”
Whilst another added: “Facebook messenger is down all over the planet. Noooo!
Speaking about the previous issues, a statement from Facebook Messenger said: “On Thursday November 30 just after midnight Pacific time we became aware that a few people were having issues with their Messenger accounts.
“We investigated and responded and the problem is resolved. We’re sorry for any inconvenience.”
This isn’t the first time Messenger fans have faced issues this year.
In September the app kept crashing after Apple released its iOS 11 update leaving thousands of iPhone users unable to access the service.
