QuoteINTERNET users are reporting widespread outages of Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram.

The three popular social media platforms, all owned by Facebook, went offline around 4pm this afternoon.

Users on Facebook saw a message from the platform saying "something is wrong" or an error page from their browser which said they are unable to connect to the website.

According to Downdetector, a rapid rise in reported issues took place from around 4pm, with 43 per cent of reports suggesting problems with server connection.

The website says 31 per cent of reports have raised issues with apps, while another 26 per cent have cited issues with sending messages on the networks.
