For its part, Instagram suffers from the same symptoms as Facebook, both in desktop and mobile versions, not allowing access to the website or refresh the feed of the mobile app. The app’s direct messages don’t work either. Finally, in the case of WhatsApp, although it is possible to access the mobile application, when trying to send a message to a contact, the clock icon will appear waiting to send the message when service is restored, at which time it will be sent automatically.
