There’s no need to panic, but nearly all of Facebook’s services are currently facing partial or complete outages, with thousands of users around the world affected, including some of us here at TechRadar.
Facebook had to take to Twitter to tell its users it is aware of the global outage and is working to restore functionality.
Anyone affected by Facebook’s outage is faced with an error message on the login page that reads, “Facebook is down for required maintenance right now but you should be able to get back on within a few minutes. In the meantime, read more about why you’re seeing this message. Thanks for your patience as we improve the site.”
Facebook Messenger, while working perfectly fine for some, is down for others. We checked a few accounts here at TechRadar and found a mixed bag – some were fully functional on both desktop and mobile, while others were either working on desktop only, and some on mobile only.
