Facebook’s social networking site, photo-sharing social network Instagram and messaging app WhatsApp were inaccessible to some users on Sunday, downdetector.com, which monitors outages, showed. The social media apps seem to be working now though after a global outage.

Downdetector.com indicated that there were more than 12,000 incidents of people reporting issues with Facebook at its peak, but that figure dropped to about 2,000 reports.

Facebook experienced one of its longest outages in March when some users around the globe faced trouble accessing Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp for more than 24 hours.
