It’s not just you — Facebook and Instagram down, prompting social media users to turn to Twitter

NEW YORK — Social media users are turning to Twitter Saturday to make sure it's not just them — yes, Facebook and Instagram are down.

To be clear, the social media sites don't appear to be down for everyone. PIX11's accounts, for example, have remained up and running.

By the flurry of tweets beginning around 9 a.m., though, the sites appear to be down for thousands of users.

Needless to say, people are airing their frustrations in the form of hilarious and sarcastic memes on Twitter, as you can see below.

Nearly half of people who reported issues — 46 percent — said they faced "total blackout" on Facebook, according to, which tracks reports of problems with the site. Thirty-eight percent faced log-in problems, and 15 percent of users' problems involved pictures.

Reports began to take a dip after 10 a.m., although some people said Facebook was still down for them.

#Facebookdown also began trending on Twitter.

Facebook has yet to post about the incident on social media.

Saturday's incident comes three days after Facebook went down for some users Wednesday morning.
