  • Facebook Instagram down as users struggle to log

This isn't the first time Facebook has faced such issue, the social media platform was hit by an outage last week crippling access to personal profiles and pages.

Some parties only had momentary outages and others weren't using Facebook anymore, so they were fine.

While some users couldn't upload pictures, like posts, or send messages, others said the website was working fine.

The issue was same on both the mobile app and the desktop version of the social media giant.

An notice reading "required maintenance" is appearing on the website after the users are logging on to the website.

Users of Facebook's online photo-sharing service, Instagram, also suffered the same fate.

The astonishing fact is the problem doesn't happen to all the users around the globe. Neither do we get problems on Instagram as well.

Facebook has over two billion monthly active users globally. So, it isn't quite clear to us whether or not the issue went away.

If you woke up Saturday and jumped on to your computer or phone to check out what's happening on Facebook, you may have had some trouble.
