Facebook was down for many users on Tuesday, with problems on the social media giant spiking, according to the website status-tracking page Downdetector.
Facebook acknowledged that people weren’t able to use the site, or Instagram, which it owns.
“We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook and Instagram. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible,” a Facebook representative said.
There were thousands of reports of problems starting Tuesday morning about 10 a.m. ET. They came from across the nation, Europe and South America, according to Downdetector’s map.
It wasn’t immediately clear what was causing the issue or when it would be resolved.
Facebook’s troubleshooting dashboard said the platform was healthy, but a company that links to Facebook’s back-end in order to let companies post to social media, SocialFLow, said there was a problem in a tweet before noon.
