Facebook Messenger is down on March 13

Facebook Messenger is down on certain Apple products, which is a cause for concern as it’s not on all iOS devices.

If you visit Twitter right now and search ‘Facebook Messenger’, you will see plenty of tweets coming in from not so happy users. It seems the app is only down on Apple products such as the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and iPad’s.

The weird thing is that this is a sporadic Facebook Messenger outage; one user said he is sat with a friend and one can get on the app, whilst the other cannot, according to Is Down Right Now USA.

Tweets are coming in very fast, People are saying if Facebook is going to make them use a separate app, the least they can do is make sure it works.

Other tweeters are saying Facebook Messenger keeps crashing on WiFi but not on your phones network. Is the app crashing on your iOS device? Please let us know what device you have, and if you are using WiFi or your own network (Let us know what your network is please).
