Social media users are turning to Twitter Saturday (25) 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.

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

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