A slew of Facebook-owned sites are experiencing a worldwide outage, leaving thousands of users unable to connect.

Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram have all been having issues since around noon (ET), in some cases resulting in a ‘total blackout.’

The article goes on to state the following:

The three apps crashed primarily in major urban areas across the United States and Europe, along with parts of South America.

WhatsApp – also owned by Facebook – has been hit by spotty service issues as well, though it does not appear to have been hit as hard as the other apps.

Facebook has confirmed the platform-wide issue, but has not yet released a fix as of about two hours after the outage first struck.

Twitter users are mocking the outage with a touch of comedy:

    Facebook was developed by the CIA’S Darpa Life Log to track every single thing in your lifetime.
    This was not acceptable to the public and was cancelled February 4th 2004.
    On February 5th 2004 they started Facebook.
    If you the the Zuckerberg did this all, I have some gorgeous swampland to sell you!
    Darpa is playing and preparing to keep the sharing of exposing them and the treasonous coup against President Trump.
    Declassified’s coming out!
