Facebook was the first to go down, followed Instagram and then Messenger joined the group. 

However, WhatsApp was experiencing its own issues earlier in the day, which had been fixed, but has now joined the team of fallen apps. 

The Mark Zuckerberg-owned company has not addressed the issue or announced what sparked the massive outage. 

DownDetector, an online site that monitors outages, shows users in New York, Texas, California and Arizona are experiencing issues.

Issues are also reported in the UK, Australia, China and other countries around the globe.

Some users report seeing error messages when using the services, while others are seeing posts from hours ago. 

Those trying to get to Facebook are being met with an error message that reads ‘Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.’ 

At the peak of the crashes, around 5:57pm ET, Facebook had more than 121,000 issue reports and Instagram hit more than 42,000, while Messenger had some 4,900 and WhatsApp showed over 1,500 – all of which are just in the US alone.
