One Facebook user tweeted: “My day off and Facebook Messenger is down.”

“Facebook, please fix messenger or I will riot,” wrote another.

Another tweeted: “Dear Facebook, you have a problem in your messenger app, try to fix it, thanks.”

Meanwhile Instagram users were complaining of similar issues, one user Tweeted: “Instagram down…my messages disappear when I load the page…is it with someone else?”

“Can’t DM anyone, pretty cool. #Instagram down” said another.
