Widespread outages hit YouTube, Discord, and Meta's platforms, including Facebook and Instagram. Users face loading issues and empty home pages

On Tuesday morning, several prominent social media platforms encountered widespread outages, disrupting user access and functionality. YouTube, Discord, and Meta's suite of apps, including Facebook, Instagram, and Threads, were among those affected.

YouTube acknowledged the issue, confirming that some users were encountering difficulties loading videos on the platform. Reports from users indicated various problems, such as encountering error messages, experiencing empty home pages, encountering spinning wheels while scrolling through Shorts, and running out of videos to watch on Shorts' infinite feed.

In response to the disruptions, Google posted updates on its support page, reassuring users that a fix was underway. Additionally, YouTube's official Twitter account, @TeamYouTube, acknowledged the issues and promised to provide further updates once the situation was resolved.


Despite efforts to address the outages, the root cause remains unclear. While it's not uncommon for multiple platforms to experience downtime simultaneously, particularly if they rely on the same cloud computing services like AWS, there have been no reported issues from such providers. Moreover, companies of the magnitude of Meta and Google typically operate their own data centers independently, making widespread outages of this nature relatively rare.
