Can't update status? Facebook and Instagram are down

If you can't post new status on Facebook, it's not you.

Facebook and its photo app Instagram are down and the platforms have been having issues since around noon, according to Down Detecter's website. Some users have posted on Twitter that they've seen a message saying the two apps are "down for maintenance."

Facebook didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

This isn't the social network's first outage. Facebook in November went down, which was caused by a test the company was running and the outage lasted 40 minutes.
