Many users are experiencing problems with Facebook and Facebook owned photo app Instagram today.  They are also reporting problems with Facebook-owned WhatsApp.  Many Facebook users have received error messages saying “something went wrong”  in addition to  a message that states “down for maintenance.”

Facebook has confirmed the outages and are working to resolve the problem.  The outages are affecting users in the US, Europe, South America, Australia and Asia, according to a map by Down Detector.

Facebook said in a tweet that it wasn’t due to a cyberattack known as a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack.
