The world’s largest social media network Facebook has reportedly crashed this afternoon.
The issues started at around 2pm GMT, and have been affecting users in both the UK and US, according to the website down detector.
The reason for the outage remains unclear at this stage, the Mirror reports.
Of those who reported issues, 50% said they were experiencing a total blackout, 26% had problems logging in, and 23% had issues with photos.
Facebook said that the outage was due to ‘required maintenance’, and said it should be back online ‘within a few minutes.’
Many frustrated users have taken to Twitter to vent their frustration.
One user said: “Is Facebook down or did they jail me without telling me and for no reason?”
Another added: “Really not cool when Facebook is down… makes my job a lot more difficult!”
And one joked: “Hi! Like you, I am also here just to check if Facebook is Down for me, or everyone else. PS: It’s not just you.”
It remains unclear how long Facebook is likely to be down for.
