Last night, Gmail users worldwide were also having trouble sending emails.

Facebook is now down with people all around the globe having difficulty accessing the world's largest social network. It says it is not a denial of service attack but rather a technical issue. "We're working to resolve the issue as soon as possible", a Facebook spokesperson wrote in an email to Mashable.

It's worldwide, but appears to be hitting the USA and Europe particularly hard.

Several of Facebook's products are suffering partial outages, affecting users globally.

Some users of Facebook (FB) and other platforms owned by the tech giant, including Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp, experienced problems accessing the services. According to the message, Facebook will be up and running "within a few minutes" but people are still reporting problems with the site.

Facebook takes to Twitter to explain outages.

While desktop versions aren't even loading for many users, apps do load the content, but you can't post new status updates or send / receive messages.

Much like the iconic scene from The Office, we should all listen to the wise words of Michael Scott and stay calm people.

So of course, people are taking to Twitter for memes and mocking.

It is still unclear when two of the biggest social media networks will be back up and running.
