On Twitter, many were in shock over how all three sites went down simultaneously.

Facebook has yet to comment on the outage.

As of 7.45pm Singapore time, WhatsApp was able to be used in Singapore but Facebook and Instagram were still down according to checks done by Coconuts Singapore. Attempts to access Facebook using VPN through a German-based IP address were successful, though.
