Facebook and Instagram were down today, March 5, 2024. All users were logged out of their accounts and can't seem to log in again even if they reset their passwords.

It could be due to various reasons such as technical issues, server problems, cyber-attacks, or maintenance activities.

Technical glitches and server issues are common causes of social media platforms going down. With the increasing complexity of these platforms and the high volume of users accessing them simultaneously, even minor issues can sometimes lead to widespread outages.

Cyber attacks, such as Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, can also disrupt the services of large online platforms like Facebook and Instagram. These attacks involve overwhelming the servers with a flood of traffic, making the platforms inaccessible to users.

Additionally, scheduled maintenance activities can sometimes cause temporary downtime for social media platforms. Companies often perform maintenance to update their systems, fix bugs, or enhance security measures, which can result in users being unable to access the platforms for some time.

Companies like Facebook and Instagram need to have robust infrastructure and security measures in place to prevent such outages from occurring frequently and to minimize the impact on their users.
