It has been chaotic since users of some social media handles realised they could not log onto their various platforms.

Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram have been rendered unresponsive since 4:00 GMT.

Facebook owns all the three apps, which run on shared infrastructure, subsequently acknowledged the outage.

The company apologised for the incident and said it is “working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.”

Twitter Communications also shared similar sentiments via Twitter.

While some businesses are lamenting the inability to execute transactions due to the development, many others are having a field day.

Here are some memes flooding Twitter as the other social networks continue to fluctuate.
