Are you trying to download an invoice but it seems like Facebook Business Manager is down?
In this Facebook Business suite tutorial, we are going to show you multiple ways how to check if Facebook Business Suite is down.
(Keep in mind: Facebook Business Suite now also called Meta Business Suite (after the Facebook-Meta rebrand) is used to be called Facebook Business Manager, we use the three terms interchangeably.)
How to check if Meta/Facebook BusinessManager is down?
There are three great ways to check if the Facebook Business Manager is down now:
- use the official Facebook Business status
- ask around in Facebook groups
- check if the Facebook Business Suite app is working
Let’s go over each of them and how you can use them to see if Facebook Business Suite is down or has been down but are now working correctly
Is Facebook Business Suite Down – status.fb.com
First, the best place to check if Facebook Business Suite is down now or is experiencing any performance issues to use the official Facebook Business Suite Status tool.
You can access this tool by opening this link: https://status.fb.com/ then select Facebook Business Suite.
As you can see, you can quickly check if Facebook Business Suite is down or not. If you only see green checkmarks, it probably means that everything is okay and Facebook Business Manager is not down.
You can also see the issues based on certain features of the Facebook Business Suite. So you can see if there is any issue with:
- sharing and content management features of the Facebook Business Suite
- Inbox features of the Facebook Business Suite
- Ads creation and management features of the Meta Business suite.
If there is an issue with any of these, you can click on them to get more information on the issue.
It is also possible that the issue with Facebook Business Suite has just been resolved now. By clicking on the History button, you can get a brief overview of all the issues and down statuses in the last 60 days.
As you might have seen, you can not only check if the Facebook Business Suite is down or not, but you can also use this official Facebook status tool to check if the Facebook Ads Manager is down.
Is Facebook Business Suite down – use Facebook-related Facebook groups
Another great way to find out if other Facebook advertisers are experiencing any similar Facebook Business Suite issues is to ask around in any Facebook ads related Facebook groups.
Here are some Facebook groups for advertisers that you can ask around in:
This way of checking if Facebook Business Suite is down or not is also great because sometimes the Facebook Business Suite is working but it is extremely slow.
And the Facebook official status tool might not show that there are some performance issues with the Business Manager, but your fellow advertisers will definitely let you know if they experience any similar issues with the Facebook Business Suite.
Is Facebook Business Manager down? – Use the Facebook Business Suite App
A third way to check if Facebook Business Manager is working correctly is to use the Facebook Business Suite App (Now called Meta Business Suite App).
If you haven’t used the app before it is really easy to start using it. You can download to any iPhone or Android phone and log in with your Facebook credentials.
If Facebook Business Suite is down, you will also not be able to use the mobile app version of the Facebook Business Suite.
Other ways to troubleshoot Facebook Business Suite down or not working
If you used any of the Facebook Business Suite down checking methods and you don’t see any sign of Facebook Business Manager being done, then it is most likely that there is an issue with your Facebook Business Suite account/your internet connection/computer.
Here are the most common issues that you might cause issues with your Facebook Business Suite.
- log out log in
- ask a team member
- empty your browser cache
- restart your computer
- check if you haven’t been removed from the Facebook Business Suite account.
