  • Facebook goes down and people are taking to Twitter to complain

Facebook-owned Instagram and WhatsApp users too were facing problems, reported The Verge.

Users had taken to the internet to complain about their temporary lack of access.

Facebook and Instagram are both inaccessible, with news feeds refusing to refresh. The main Facebook Web domain wouldn't load, and photo-sharing service Instagram was also unusable.

The graphs that measure the number of complaints received by Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp users all look the same.

There are more than 1.52 billion daily active Facebook users, according to the social media network's website. Users around the world report difficulty accessing these platforms, with many reporting that they are completely down.

An map on DownDetector.com shows the outage is spread across the northeastern United States and Europe.

There's no confirmation from Facebook yet about the outage, though the company should make a statement about it once the services are restored.

The outage comes exactly a month after Facebook went down for nearly a full day across parts of North America and Europe on March 14.

Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

There's now no word from Facebook or the other companies about what is causing the problems or when things will be back online.
