Outage hits Facebook, Instagram users worldwide

Facebook and Instagram applications are shown on the screen of an iPhone in Zagreb Croatia

Facebook and Instagram are having technical issues as users reported problems with the social media sites Wednesday.

On the website Downdetector.com, there were "problems at Facebook".

One said: "Facebook, Messenger and Instagram are down and here I am ranting on Twitter".

About three hours into the outage, Facebook turned to twitter to say it was working on fixing the problem and that it wasn't a malicious attack. "We're working to resolve the issue as soon as possible".

Those on Instagram were not able to refresh feeds or post new material.

Facebook is experiencing the worst outage in its history, with essential services left unusable for global users.

Facebook and Instagram experienced outages around the world on Wednesday. Some users saw a message that said Facebook was down for 'required maintenance.' The outages mysteriously began at the same time, and are being felt across the world.

People from all over the United States and other countries said they could not access the website and received error messages. Facebook wrote it was "investigating" the issue.

Soon after, folks started reporting that Facebook was also taking the day off, leaving people unable to access it, suggesting all was not well at Menlo Park.

The outages appear to be concentrated around the USA and Europe, as well as eastern Australia. We expect this to be resolved shortly.
