Facebook responds after users complain of apps being down

Facebook has said it is working to resolve issues disrupting image-sharing site Instagram and messaging application WhatsApp services.

Some Facebook and Instagram users experienced connection issues Wednesday afternoon, as Facebook said it was working to fix the problem.

Facebook's business platform Workplace was also reported to be affected by the disruption.

When attempting to log in to the site, some users were greeted by a message stating "Facebook will be back soon".

The website Downdetector.com, which tracks outages, said Facebook began to experience issues at around noon EDT.

It appears like similar problems could be causing Facebook's photo-sharing social network Instagram to be down too.

"We are now experiencing issues that may cause some API requests to take longer or fail unexpectedly". It's possible that your friends will be able to access the site while your account is still unavailable.

Some are reporting problems with the app loading slowly, feeds not refreshing and some can't login at all.

And there's probably some other underground social media network your kids aren't telling you about.
