Facebook down reports are on the rise, with widespread issues reported with the social networking giant’s site. Facebook-owned social network Instagram has also gone offline tonight. Independent outage monitor Down Detector has registered a huge spike in Facebook down reports, with tens of thousands of reported issues. According to Down Detector stats, over two thirds of affected Facebook users experiencing a total blackout while around a quarter were hit with login issues.
Facebook users have also reported getting an error code 1 message.
At the time of writing, Down Detector UK has registered a peak of over 70,000 reports of Facebook down – with over 4,500 reports of Messenger down.
Meanwhile downdetector.com registered a peak of over 120,000 reports of Facebook being down.
The spike in Facebook down reports began around 10.30pm UK time today, with users – as they typically do – taking to rival social networking site Twitter to report issues with the service.
Instagram services go down across UK and Europe
One tweeted: “Here we go again #Facebook #FacebookDown”.
While another posted: “People coming to Twitter to check if Facebook is really down”.
One added: “Is it me or Facebook is down? #facebookdown”.
And another wrote: “The family of apps is down again #instagramdown #facebookdown”.
Despite the huge number of reported issues with Facebook, Instagram and Messenger today the latest server troubles appear to be short lived.
Since registering a peak of over 100,000 reported issues with Facebook, downdetector.com – as well as Down Detector UK – has seen a sharp decline in reported problems.
