Facebook, Instagram outage goes global

While Facebook and Instagram are still down for some users Whats App joins the list

A slew of Facebook -owned social media sites are running again following hours-long outages worldwide on Wednesday.

"We are aware that some people are now having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps".

Facebook continues to work on the issue affecting its family of apps.

We will update this article, as soon as we receive any updates regarding the issue.

Instagram has not issued a message through Twitter.

Complaints about problems with Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are piling up elsewhere.

On the image-sharing site Instagram, one of the most popular social networks among Israelis, users were having trouble reading and posting, though the website seemed worse affected than mobile apps.

While the problems at the other two social networks are rather similar, WhatsApp users are expecting a slightly different set of issues.

Facebook did not give an estimate for when they expect the problem to be resolved.

The site has been hit with more than 2,700 reports of outages.

Shit sucks, basically. Shit sucks so much that some desperate Facebook and Instagram users are calling the cops, urging them to do something about this global outage.

Facebook users, including brand marketers, expressed their outrage on Twitter with the #facebookdown hashtag.

Among those having a bit of fun at Facebook's expense were Canterbury Police, who issued a tongue-in-cheek tweet reminding Kiwis not to report the issue to any of its departments.

According to website Down Detector, the majority of users affected are situated in North America, Europe, and Latin America.

While there isn't enough information available at the moment, people are coming up with a lot of possible stories, including a DDoS attack.

While Facebook is down, Twitter is working and full of fun reactions.
