Facebook and Instagram have been going down far more over the last year than they used to.
The two social networks are also less reliable that Snapchat and Twitter, data shared with Business Insider by Downdetector shows.
The surge in outages comes as Facebook tries to move past two years of constant scandals, and embarks on an ambitious project to knit its messaging apps together.
It's not just you: Facebook and Instagram are definitely crashing more than they used to.
The two Facebook-owned social networks have experienced a dramatic spike in outages over the last 12 months, data shared with Business Insider by downtime-monitoring service Downdetector shows— contributing to frustration among the company's 2.7 billion users around the world, who rely on Facebook's services to do everything from communicate with their friends to support their businesses and put food on the table.
