Facebook outage had everyone freaking out

It appears Facebook is dealing with an extended outage impacting many users on its desktop and mobile sites. 

According to Outage Report, users began reporting issues with Facebook around 11:11 a.m. Eastern time. 

 

 

Some users also reported having problems with Instagram. 

 

 

A Facebook spokesperson told Mashable that the company is aware of the issue and are "working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible." 

Facebook has since posted an update on its developers site saying its investigating the "increased level of API errors." Around 1 p.m., it updated the current status to "ongoing."

Facebook representatives told Mashable that most of the problems had been resolved at 2:35 p.m. Eastern. They blamed a "networking issue" for the problems.  

 

 

Unsurprisingly, everyone turned to Twitter to vent their frustrations and see if it was just them having problems. (Spoiler alert: It wasn't).
