Were you trying to check Facebook this Sunday morning and couldn’tt seem to log on? You weren’t alone.
Facebook – along with Instagram and Whatsapp, which are owned by Facebook – experienced widespread problems this morning. People began having issue with the apps and the desktop sites about 6:30 a.m. About three hours later, the issue seemed to be resolved for U.S. users.
The site “DownDetector.com” showed Facebook having problems in several areas across the globe, with the Northeast U.S. as one of the trouble spots. Others include Europe and the Philippines.
So far, no word yet on what caused the problem. And event at 11 a.m. EDT, DownDetector still showed major outages in Europe.
Other major social media apps like Snapchat and Twitter were not affected – and the hashtag “#FacebookDown” quickly started trending on Twitter,
