Facebook users around the world had trouble accessing the social media site Tuesday morning, prompting people to flock to Twitter to commiserate.

Users flocked to Twitter on Tuesday to vent about the outage using the hashtags "FacebookDown" and "InstagramDown". Facebook has acknowledged the problem and is working on a fix.

According to DownDetector, while the vast majority of users experiencing the outage located in the states and across Europe, users in South America and Asia are also experiencing downtime.

One said: "I do believe that Facebook is down once again".

A third wrote: "Facebook what is the deal with your website right now?"


Small, short outages usually happen every so often to all of the social media giants.

The outage began after midnight and continued for a few hours before the Messenger service was restored.

"Thanks for your patience as we improve the site". This is the second time this month users of the platform reported the site not operating at its full potential.

Facebook was yet to reveal the reason behind the outage.
