You May Be Seeing Issues On FB or Workplace Chat
If you are trying to communicate on either Facebook Messenger or Workplace Chat things may not be working properly at this time. Here is what we know so far.
The issue with Facebook or Workplace Chat
The issue appears to be an outage with the FB or Workplace Chat (which is the business version of FB), where users see No Internet or Connecting in their chat window.
Unfortunately not many more details as of yet. Will post more if we get any.
UPDATE: 11:35a (NY USA Time)
As of now, Facebook has not posted any status of an issue. However, if you look at Down Detector, they show more issues on FB properties, to include Facebook itself and Instagram.
