  • Facebook's outage is affecting users around the world

"We're working to resolve the issue as soon as possible", the tweet said.

Instagram and Facebook are experiencing at least partial outages around the world.

KNOE has not been able to post on Facebook since just after 11 a.m. Messaging services are also being affected.

More than a third of Facebook users affected by the outage reported that they were experiencing a 'total blackout'.

Facebook's main product, its Messenger service, image-sharing site Instagram and messaging app WhatsApp have all been disrupted.

Some Instagram users can see their feed, but not others, and everyone is having trouble posting anything.

Facebook didn't disclose the nature of the problem or how widespread it was, but the website downdetector.com indicated the majority of the problems were in the United States and western Europe.

But since approximately 9:00 am PT/11:00 am CT this morning, users across the globe have been encountering issues with Facebook's apps.

The outage, looking at Downdetector.com - is worldwide but hitting the USA and Europe fairly hard.

Instead, many took to Twitter to voice their displeasure and to try to find out what was going on.

While desktop versions aren't even loading for many users, apps do load the content, but you can't post new status updates or send / receive messages.

Some Twitter users who work in "Facebook-centric" jobs, expressed their panic and distress at being unable to use the platform.
