Meanwhile, some Twitter users chose to have some fun with the outage.
A global Facebook outage greeted its users this morning with a "down for maintenance" or a server error when they attempted to access the popular website.
The outage occurred around 7pm with users unable to publish a post, and in some cases, even log in to the site. Have you been having problems with Facebook or Instagram today?
Users on photo-sharing app Instagram - owned by Facebook - also experienced problems at around the same time. We quickly investigated and are now restoring service for everyone. On contacting, a Facebook spokesperson told that the issue happened due to a technical issue and they were restoring the service for everyone.
DownDetector, a United Kingdom site that collects reports of website crashes, said the issues started around the early afternoon (9.15pm, Singapore time).
The issues seem to be mostly resolved, so luckily Facebook/Instagram users won't have to stress out for much longer.
