The reports have led people to fear Facebook was hacked as they take refuge on the last remaining social media platform; Twitter.
One user, Tony, said: “Facebook including WhatsApp & Insta facing technical issues. Somebody hacked?”
Another, Trillian, added: “Looks like Facebook has crashed, as of right now 5pm in the UK.
“Must be serious if the entire system has gone down. I wonder if it’s been hacked?”
