Facebook DOWN – Social Network Breakdown Affecting Thousands of Users

Facebook users do not seem to be able to access the social networking site and the application, which is experiencing offline server issues.

Facebook's crash started earlier this morning, as fans flooded competing social media sites stating that they could not connect.

At the time of writing this report, Down Detector, an independent controller, has logged more than 3,000 user reports insisting that Facebook was down.

A map on the site showed that connection problems were affecting the United Kingdom, the United States and large areas of Europe. Facebook crash problems have also affected parts of Asia.

You can see for yourself by consulting the trouble map below.

The issues also affect Facebook Messenger, as well as Facebook-owned services like Instagram and WhatsApp.

Twitter is also full of complaints with users confirming problems with their feeds.

A user writes: "Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp DOWN, I feel without hands."

Another post: "FacebookDown – seems to be pretty catastrophic, can not load the page to connect."

A Twitter user joked that it was time to relax now that social media sites are down: "Looks like all social networks owned by Zuckie are down … #whatsappdown #FacebookDown time to relax? "

Best of all is the tweet from another user suggesting to separate the racing pigeons.

"Explode CB radios and racing pigeons. #WhatsAppDown #FacebookDown #instagramdown."

Facebook does not say anything about the cause of the problems or when things will be put back online.

Express Online will continue to update the article as the story develops.
