After 40,000 users reported problems with messaging, posting, and Snapchat restarting, the service has been reactivated after more than 70,000 users complained about difficulties with the app
After users reported difficulty posting, messaging, and accessing Snapchat on Wednesday, the app is now back up and running.
The origin of the problem is still unknown.
Snapchat took to Twitter to announce that problems with the popular photo and video sharing software were resolved around 10:30 a.m. The popular social media site wrote, The issue has been resolved! If youre still having difficulty, please let us know. Happy Snapping!
The business acknowledged a problem with its service earlier on Wednesday, posting stipulations on Twitter that read, Were aware that some Snapchatters are having problems using the app right now hang on tight, well look into it.
Meanwhile, Downdetector, a website that monitors websites and apps, had more than 41,000 reports of problems as of 9 p.m. on Wednesday. As of noon, reports have dropped significantly.
Facebook, Whatsapp, and Instagram experienced widespread problems in a six-hour outage that cost up to $230 million last week. On Friday, the company reported more downtimes, causing problems to resurface.
Were aware that some people are having difficulty accessing our apps and products, he added. Were trying to get things back to normal as soon as possible and we apologize for any inconvenience, Facebook said in a tweet.
The social media platforms are now operating as if they were yesterday.
