Just after 11 a.m., there appeared to be a widespread outage for Facebook and Instagram users in the U.S. and elsewhere.
There is no official word yet on what caused the outage, but websites such as downdetector.com and outagereport.com that follow downtime on major websites are recording complaints from all over the U.S., Hungary, Kosovo, Germany, Poland and other countries. The sites are also recording complaints about Instagram being down.
Most complaints are reporting a total blackout with many others complaining that users are unable to log in. Many other sites are showing up as having “extreme” outages.
