More than half of Facebook user reports on Downdetector say they’re experiencing a total blackout, while around a quarter are having login issues. Around the same number are experiencing issues with News Feed.
Nearly three quarters of Instagram users who flagged issues on Downdetector say they’re having problems with News Feed, while around 9% are experiencing issues with Stories.
As usual, people quickly went to the go-to site for when Facebook and its family of apps is down: Twitter.
Another tweet read: “Realising Facebook and Instagram are down and I haven’t been hacked,” along with a dancing GIF.
