Hours after Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp suffered operating problems on Monday, the short video network TikTok also registered a fall in numerous countries.

The U.S., Russia, Italy, Germany and the U.K. were among the affected nations, according to data from the DownDetector portal.

Users complained about the inability to open the application, as well as to connect to the server and access the website. Meanwhile, Reuters reports that Twitter, Google and Amazon web services are also experiencing failures.

The sudden shutdown has even affected other unrelated apps like Telegram, which has experienced slowdowns due to the massive spike in use.
