Social media users from different parts of the world complained of problems while using Facebook, Instagram and Messenger on Tuesday. Bugs were reported from several parts of the US and the UK. According to Downdetector website which monitors online outages, the outages did not appear to hit the entire Facebook network but several areas reported disruption in services.

While 63 per cent reported a total blackout, 19 per cent had problems in logging in while 16 per cent faced problems with their News Feed.

"Facebook always getting hacked and now disabled... Why can't Facebook work right. I can't get on my new account because it was disabled," posted an user.

"Okay, is Facebook Messenger down?" posted another. Users said the Facebook app failed to send or load messages.

The social networking platform was yet to identify or comment on the latest outage.
