According to a report, the outages started at 6:30 p.m. (Philippine Time). Facebook and Instagram became inaccessible, and news feeds were unable to refresh, and the Facebook.com domain became unavailable. Likewise, Facebook’s messenger chat service, Messenger, was not spared. Meanwhile, for WhatsApp, incoming and outgoing messages failed to come through.
