Facebook is down in Asia-Pacific

Social media users from different countries on Tuesday reported not being able to access their Facebook accounts.

The service is down for many users in Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. According to DownDetector.com, the outage, which also appears to be affecting Facebook’s mobile app and Messenger, has also spread to parts of North America as well.


Instead of seeing their profile page and photos, users were shown an error message stating the company was “working on it and we’ll get it fixed as soon as we can”.

Some users also reported being unable to access the company’s Messenger app, which is designed as a text-messaging replacement.

Meanwhile, the hashtag #facebookdown trended as Twitter was flooded with queries regarding the Facebook glitch.
