Both Facebook and Instagram have posted an update via Twitter that they are aware of the ongoing issue.

Facebook did not say what was causing the outages.

DownDetector, a website where people can report outages of popular internet services, indicates there has been huge spikes in complaints about Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram over the last several hours. "We're working to resolve the issue as soon as possible".

Downdetector.com, a site that monitors site outages, said the Facebook problem affected parts of the USA, including the East and West Coast; parts of Europe and elsewhere.

This issue also affects 3rd party website logins that use Facebook.

Facebook users, including brand marketers, expressed their outrage on Twitter with the #facebookdown hashtag. "A #FacebookDown", user Mayra Mesina tweeted.

Some users also noted that they could not use Facebook login to enter other apps like Tinder or Spotify.

Elizabeth Warren, who is hoping to be the Democratic candidate in the next United States presidential election, told the New York Times: "We need to stop this generation of big tech companies from throwing around their political power to shape the rules in their favour and throwing around their economic power to snuff out or buy up every potential competitor".

In a series of tweets, Facebook confirmed the outage, and said it wasn't being targeted in a DDoS attack, as some people had speculated without evidence. At the moment they could only confirm that the issue is not related to a DDoS attack. While the sites/apps are working fine for some, others are unable to access or login to Facebook and Instagram.
