If your Galaxy phone is currently giving you trouble in refreshing your Instagram or Facebook feed and making you wonder why that WhatsApp text you sent a few hours ago hasn’t received a response yet, you’re not alone. All three services are facing an outage right now and are down for millions of users around the world.

Both mobile and desktop versions of these services are affected, and Facebook has acknowledged that there’s an issue and that it’s working on a fix. But there’s no estimate for when things will go back to normal, and given how it’s been many hours since the three services have been down, the issue looks to be a serious one and may not be resolved for a while longer.

Whatever the case may be, you can follow Facebook’s Twitter account (yes, the irony isn’t lost on us) to find out when service is restored. We’ll update this article once there are any new developments, and in the meantime, maybe check out our YouTube channel to pass the time as you wait for your favorite social media apps to come back online.

Update: Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram are starting to come online for users around the world, and you will most likely be able to access them if you try now.
