Facebook and Instagram services down
Social media users are outraged as Facebook and Instagram remain down across the UK.
Users in the south and south-east of England are experiencing the most difficulty.
Both social media sites are displaying error messages once those in these areas attempt to use them.
It’s unclear what has caused the mayhem or for how long it’ll remain.
But frantic users have ranted on Twitter this afternoon.
One man posted: “Facebook & Instagram are down, which means people are quickly remembering Twitter exists.
“It’s like running out of your favorite wine, then you remember those loose Bud Lite bottles waaaaay in the back of your fridge.”
Another wrote: “Facebook is down it looks like. People are actually going to have to talk to each other!”
Facebook and Instagram are yet o comment on the chaos.
But when Facebook crashed in December, users across the UK panicked and grew concerned the social media had been hacked.
Reports then suggested 44% of UK users had a total blackout.
But on that occasion, users in Belgium, Hungary and Italy were also affected.
Facebook currently has more than 2 billion monthly active users around the world.
Mark Zuckerberg’s company also owns Instagram, which was founded in February 2004.
