Meta's social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Threads, and Messenger services in India and several other countries were restored after a brief outage on Tuesday evening.

Users were unable to load apps, deliver messages and refresh their search feeds on Facebook and Instagram.

There were more than 300,000 reports of outages on Facebook, while there were more than 20,000 reports on Instagram, according to tracking website Downdetector.

Several users were logged out of their Facebook accounts and due to the outage, they were unable to log back in.

"We're aware people are having trouble accessing our services. We are working on this now," Meta spokesperson Andy Stone told the media.

Besides India, the outages were experienced in several other countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Brazil.
