A partial Facebook outage affecting users around the world has stretched beyond 10 hours. It’s believed to be the biggest interruption ever suffered by the social network.

The last time Facebook had a disruption of this magnitude was in 2008, when the site had 150m users – compared to around 2.3bn monthly users today.

Facebook’s main product, its two messaging apps and image-sharing site Instagram were all affected.

The cause of the interruption has not yet been made public.

Some users of Facebook and other platforms owned by the tech giant — including Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp — reported intermittent problems accessing the services and posting content.

Instead of selfies and status updates, many got an error message that said:

“Sorry, Something went wrong. We’re working on getting this fixed as fast as we can.”

About an hour after users first noted the outage, Facebook responded on Twitter. It also noted that “the issue is not related to a DDoS attack.”
