The Facebook-owned platform said in a tweet earlier on Monday, "We know that some people are currently having issues, and we're fixing it ASAP."

Downdetector tracks outages by collating status reports from a series of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform. The outages might be affecting a larger number of users.

According to a report by The Independent, users on the platform were greeted with messages that asked them to "try again later". In the UK, there were reportedly over 3,000 cases of downtime faced by users.  

This is not the first time the service has suffered an outage, last April, users had reported being unable to post and view content on the app – an issue that was widely reported until it was finally fixed by the Facebook-owned company.
