Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, all of which are owned by Facebook, are back online after experiencing technical issues affecting millions of people around the world on Sunday.

The problems were reported to have started late on Sunday morning, with all three platforms going completely offline by the early afternoon. The three platforms remained offline for roughly two hours with users in Europe, the US and parts of Asia having experienced most difficulties.

The outage comes a month after Facebook experienced its worst every outage, which affected users for 24 hours.

In a statement, Facebook said it was aware that some people were having trouble accessing its family of apps. The company said it was working to resolve all issues in as short a time as possible.
