Facebook is unstable and has problems on Thursday (28). According to reports on the Internet, users face difficulties to log in and the feed does not load or update. Complaints on the Downdetector, a tool that monitors the functioning of services on the web, started around 11 am, with a peak at noon. O TechTudo he contacted Facebook's advisory in Brazil, who said he was checking the situation: "We are aware that some people are having problems accessing the Facebook family of apps. We are already working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible."

Despite the complaints, we were unable to reproduce any specific errors in the tests of the TechTudo. Facebook was slow to load, but opened normally in the web version and in the Android and iPhone (iOS) mobile applications. On Thursday, Instagram also faces instability. Users complain that the application does not load the feed and some photos are without a caption. Remember that the two services are the responsibility of Facebook, which also owns WhatsApp.

From the Downdetector map, it is possible to see that the Facebook flaw is concentrated in the United States and Mexico, but there are complaints in Brazil, mainly in the Southeast region. Some users report that they are unable to post on Facebook or change their profile and cover photos, others claim that this is a total failure, with the display of an error message.
Google Trends, which tracks Internet searches, has also seen an increase in search related failures. In the last hour, the number of searches for the terms "Facebook crashed today", "Facebook unstable", "Problems with Facebook" and "Facebook down" increased. Already on Twitter, the failure in the social network became the target of complaints.
When Facebook has a problem, you can try some actions to get the social network back up and running. You can log out and log in again, clear the cache of the app or browser, or try to reinstall the app on your phone. It is worth mentioning, however, that these measures do not guarantee that Facebook will return to normal, since it is probably a general error.
