When confirming the platform-wide issue Wednesday afternoon, Facebook shut down speculation that the site may have been targeted by a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack.
'We're aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps,' the firm tweeted about two hours into the outage.
'We're focused on working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, but can confirm that the issue is not related to a DDoS attack.'  
More than a third of Facebook users affected by the outage reported that they were experiencing a 'total blackout.'
Others said they could not refresh the News Feed or log into their accounts. Similar problems cropped up on Instagram and Messenger at roughly the same time.
