Facebook users have experienced an outage Wednesday morning. Users report being unable to use the website and other users report the website’s functionality such as the “post” box was not working.
The outage of the network was tracked by the website Down Detector, where users continue to report issues with the platform.
According to a statement from Facebook to CNET, the social networking website said they are acknowledging that some users are experiencing trouble.
“We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook and Instagram,” a Facebook representative told CNET. “We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.”
That said, users took to Twitter with the #FacebookDown to poke fun at the website’s issues.
