Several social media platforms took a hit Wednesday, with many users reporting widespread issues uploading images to Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook. Rival platform Twitter also had issues, with some users reporting not being able to send direct messages or receive notifications.

Facebook, which owns Instagram and WhatsApp, told CNN it was working to fix the problem quickly.  

"During one of our routine maintenance operations, we triggered an issue that is making it difficult for some people to upload or send photos and videos. We're working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and we apologize for any inconvenience," said a Facebook spokesperson.

Twitter issued a similar response.

"We're currently having some issues with DM delivery and notifications. We're working on a fix and will follow up as soon as we have an update for you. Apologies for the inconvenience," the company said in a tweet.

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.

A server change in March caused a widespread outage of Facebook and its other services that stretched over two days.
