Global Reddit Outage Resolved: Platform Returns to Normal

Reddit recently faced a significant disruption that caused havoc for approximately one hour. During this period, users encountered difficulties loading Reddit pages on their browsers while being logged into the site. This issue led to frustrating encounters with error messages or blank white screens. Interestingly, users who attempted to access the site while logged out faced no such problems, as the pages loaded seamlessly.

Issue Resolved, Normalcy Restored

Thankfully, Reddit has fully resolved the problem, and users are now able to browse the platform without any hindrances. The impact of the temporary issues was evident through nearly 30,000 user reports on Downdetector during the outage, reflecting the widespread effect on the platform.

Reddit’s Confirmation and Status Update

Reddit officially confirmed the resolution of the incident through a message posted on its status site at around 3:15 AM PKT. Throughout the duration of the issues, the status site acknowledged a “major outage” affecting the desktop web, mobile web, and the company’s native mobile apps. However, the exact cause of the outage remains undisclosed by Reddit.

Recent Turbulence in Reddit’s Journey

The recent disruption adds to a series of issues that Reddit has faced. In June, the platform experienced crashes as numerous subreddits went dark in protest of the company’s API pricing. Additionally, in July, Reddit’s search functionality encountered disruptions, rendering it unavailable for a few hours.

Social Media Outages: A Common Occurrence

While Reddit’s outage garnered attention, it is essential to note that social media outages are not uncommon. Platforms like Instagram and Twitter have also faced disruptions in the past.
