Facebook and Instagram Down 27 January 2015

[Update 2 @ 8:13pm] Facebook has revealed the reason behind the outage on Facebook and Instagram earlier today.

[Update @ 3:10pm] Facebook is back up. It is a little slow on our end, but at least the site is working again.

Just moments ago, it seems like two of the biggest social sites in the world, Facebook and Instagram are not accessible.  We thought it was our connection but it turns out that this is a global occurrence.

We have yet to hear from Facebook (who also owned Instagram, by the way) about this surprise downtime, so keep calm and stay tuned. At least, WhatsApp (which also owned by Facebook) is still functioning normally.
