Just as Facebook’s Antigone Davis was live on CNBCdefending the company’s policies and its handling of research data suggesting Instagram is harmful to teens, its network of services suddenly went offline. Instagram.com is flashing a 5xx Server Error message, while the Facebook site merely tells us that something went wrong.
Facebook, WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram appear to be back online after an outage that lasted several hours on Monday.

Instagram merely displayed the message: “5xx Server Error.”
