WhatsApp experiencing global outage

No, it's not just you. WhatsApp, the popular messaging service just bought by Facebook, has been down for about two hours. The company confirmed the outage via its Twitter account, and we've been receiving loads of emails from disgruntled users in India and the UK. WhatsApp neglected to say when service will be restored, though it did blame the problem on "server issues."
Update: Well, this is interesting: WhatsApp competitor Telegram is also down, apparently due to an "avalanche" of new users it picked up in the wake of the WhatsApp acquisition. Frustrating day all around, eh?
