While desktop versions aren't even loading for many users, apps do load the content, but you can't post new status updates or send / receive messages.

Many report being unable to post, share, or like. However, the internet did what it does best - set itself on fire and ran to Twitter to react.

Facebook released a statement around 2 p.m., after many users had been experiencing the outage for around 2 hours, stating, "We're aware that some people are now having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps".

The social media giant, which owns Instagram, said it was aware of issues people were having with Facebook's suite of apps.

According to downdetector.com, Facebook users in the United States are reporting issues with posting, live streaming features and a slew of other technical difficulties.

The problems were happening across the globe, with large parts of the USA and Europe affected, according to outage tracking website Down Detector.

According to the website Down Detector, the most common problems being reported are total blackout and log in issues.

The outage is also affecting Messenger.

Facebook Messenger is the social network's chatting client that is harnessed by users across the globe.

WhatsApp, on the other hand, was working fine.

So of course, people are taking to Twitter for memes and mocking.

It's been zero days since our last internet incident.
