Facebook is down: 'Sorry, something went wrong'

Facebook is down: 'Sorry, something went wrong'

Some news sites are reporting that Facebook is down for users worldwide, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Ironically, perhaps, reaction was swift on rival social media giant Twitter, with tweets regarding the outage pouring in by the dozens with the hashtag #FacebookDown. An outage map from Downdetector showed the problem was highly concentrated in the northeastern and midwestern regions of the United States and southern Brazil.

At this point it's still unclear what caused the Facebook outage, and the social network has not acknowledged that there ever was a problem.

The error message read "Sorry, something went wrong" as users tried to log in. The outage also impacts south central Kansas.

If your Facebook app hasn't been reloading or your messages haven't been sending, you're not alone. The hashtag #Facebookdown and #facebookoutage are now trending on Twitter.

Some joked that the issue would push them to finally go outside.
