Thousands of Facebook and Instagram users were unable to access their social media pages Wednesday morning.
Down Detector, which monitors outages, shows that nearly 10,000 people reported a problem with Facebook today. Forty percent reported a total blackout, 36 percent were unable to log in and 22 percent were having problems with the app.
“We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook and Instagram,” a Facebook spokesperson said. “We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.”
Some turned to desperate measures – turning Facebook off.
Never miss a local story.
Others went crazy.
And some resorted to other social media sites.
