- Facebook users around the world were reporting that the social networking site was down on Monday afternoon.

If you didn't live through it yourself, the website detector, Downdetector confirmed that "Facebook is having issues since 12:56 PM EST".

According to the web service DownDetector, the outage spread westward across the USA, and the southeast coast of Brazil appeared to be affected as well.

The company has yet to release a statement about why the outage happened.

Avengers 4 is now three hours long
We know that there will be time-travel involved. "We're really just scratching the surface on our VFX shots", Russo said. The last one landed towards the end of November and we'd expect the same for whatever Avengers 4 ends up being called...

WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger were also out of service, though Instagram remained up and running. "We're working on it and we'll get it fixed as soon as we can".

"Sorry. Something went wrong".

Update, 10:50 a.m. PT: Facebook is working again for people who previously reported issues.
