Thousands of people reported that Facebook and Instagram crashed this afternoon.
People had been trying to bucket their pages but are not getting past the record in, or are only means to bucket certain pages.
‘Totally vacant after having steady issues…….total outage??’ Andy Milne wrote online.
Dolly Escuadra added: ‘What will the universe do?’
Down Detector, which monitors websites for problems, says that the site was down opposite the UK and tools of the United States.
