WhatsApp observed to be down in Pakistan and other countries

In a Tuesday outage that prevented individuals from using the Meta-owned programs, the instant messaging service WhatsApp ceased to function for customers in Pakistan and other nations.

The site, which is owned by Facebook and has more than two billion users globally, has not released any statements. However, when they were unable to connect on WhatsApp, the users turned to other social media sites.

There is currently no information available regarding what is occurring to these social media platforms. While this might be the case, a lot of users of social media acted quickly to address the problem on Twitter, the only social media site that is currently functional.

The moment the users encountered the issue, they went to Twitter and posted a message using the hashtag #Whatsappdown. Following that, a huge number of people from many nations raised the same problem and added new hashtags, such as #Instagramdown and #Facebookdown, questioning why WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger are currently unavailable.
