Facebook, Instagram experience connection issues

Facebook users are facing a frustrating afternoon with the social network site and app appearing to be down and offline.

Along with reports that Facebook is down, it also appears that Instagram is also facing a major outage with hundreds of complaints that the popular photo app is offline.

The website downdetector.com, which monitors the number of reported problems with certain websites, reported that Facebook had a high of 11,127 reports at approximately 9 a.m. and that number has remained high since. According to the message, Facebook will be up and running "within a few minutes" but people are still reporting problems with the site.

Instagram began suffering from issues at around the same time as Facebook with users unable to log in and use the service. It's possible that your friends will be able to access the site while your account is still unavailable. "Make sure you're connected to the internet and try again".


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

It was unclear when the issue might be resolved.

Facebook is having problems Wednesday that's preventing people from posting.

This is a developing news story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
