Facebook is down at the moment it seems, as a flood of reports has sent a huge spike in outages on the social media platform.

While it’s unclear what’s causing the issue at Facebook, outages website Downdetector saw a big spike in issues starting at around 5:30 am EDT, meaning that some users had issues connecting and loading the desktop and mobile app versions. However, there is no official word from Facebook owner Meta acknowledging or detailing any current issues.

Meta did launch Threads by Instagram on July 5th, and some users are speculating there may be a link, as it appears other Meta platforms are also affected; Instagram, as well as Threads.
