Facebook went down today around 12:00 PM EDT. Because Facebook owns Instagram and WhatsApp, those sites are down too. Thankfully, Facebook doesn’t own Twitter. Facebook is using Twitter to inform everyone what’s happening.
We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

I hope this doesn’t happen close to a national election. I rely on Facebook to tell me who the
Soviets Russians want me to vote for.
