According to Down Detector, Facebook outages were first reported Monday afternoon. The site's live outage map shows reports of Facebook being down in most of the Eastern U.S., as well as parts of Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Australia and the Philippines.
Instagram outage reports appear to be concentrated in the Eastern and Western U.S., although some reports came in from the U.K., Europe and Brazil.
Snapchat outage reports came from parts of the U.S. and Northern Europe.
After people began encountering issues on the other social media networks, the usual question about Facebook's status began springing up on Twitter.

The hashtag "Instagram Down" also earned plenty of attention.

Facebook has not commented on the new outage. Back in March, the social network had one of its longest outages, stretching more than 14 hours, CNN reported at the time.
Ironically, the social network had to go to Twitter to tell users they were working on a fix.
"We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps. We’re working to resolve the issue as soon as possible," Facebook tweeted at the time.
