The outage-tracking website showed that there are more than 9,000 incidents of people reporting issues with Facebook.

Facebook, which operates the other social media sites, has more than 2.3 billion users worldwide on all its platforms.

First reported in parts of Europe by Downdetector, a website that monitors outages, the problem was also noted across South Africa and the contient.

It appears that Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram are suffering another outage.

Soon after the users faced outage, several users took to Twitter to share their experience with hashtags like #FacebookDown, #instagramdown and #whatsappdown.

Clippers end skid, enter playoffs after OT win over Utah
In between, they lost 122-117 to the Lakers, who were 12 games behind the Clippers coming into the game. If all three teams win, or if Los Angeles loses to Utah , the Clippers would be the No. 8 seed.

"Ok. who broke #Facebook?"

Facebook will likely issue comments on the outage via its Twitter accounts, but it may be a while before those statements are published.

"What is wrong with Facebook", Kularakkhita asked in a tweet from Thailand. Facebook says it will be able to spot the photos and videos known as "revenge porn" and send them to be reviewed.

The massive outage comes about a month after a similar widespread outage shut down Facebook's services.

A spokesman for Facebook said: "Earlier today, some people may have experienced trouble connecting to the family of apps". "We're working to resolve the issue as soon as possible".
