Social media platforms came back online Wednesday night. Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp was experiencing various issues on Wednesday, but Facebook's spokesperson said problems were fixed. 

"We're back!" Instagram said in a tweet. "The issue has been resolved and we should be back at 100% for everyone. We're sorry for any inconvenience."


Twitter said it was "almost 100% resolved," on its Twitter Support page.



Even the CIA responded to the social media issues.


"Yes, we are affected by #instagramdown, too," The CIA tweeted. "No, we didn’t cause it. No, we can’t fix yours. Did you try turning it off and back on again?"



The partial outage frustrated users of the world's largest social network, with many taking to Twitter to complain.


More than 14,000 users reported issues with Instagram, while more than 7,500 and 1,600 users complained about Facebook and WhatsApp, according to outage tracking website Downdetector.com.
