Instagram also experienced issues, with some users unable to log into their accounts.

Facebook told the BBC, "We're aware that some people are now having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps".

While there has been speculation that the site may have been targeted by a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack, the firm said this is not the case.

'We're working to resolve the issue as soon as possible'.

Those on Twitter are having some fun with posts about people reacting to Facebook and Instagram being down, and using the #facebookdown.

According to Down Detector, a website that tracks online service interruptions, most of the outage was in Europe and on America's East and West coasts.

No, you're not the only one who can not post to Facebook or Instagram.

The outage includes Oculus, Facebook's virtual reality company and Workplace, its corporate comunications software.

The message continued on to say, "Facebook is down for required maintenance right now, but you should be able to get back on within a few minutes".

The outage is occurring against a political backdrop of legislators in the United States and beyond considering whether large technology firms - not just Facebook - should be broken up.

It is still unclear when two of the biggest social media networks will be back up and running.
