These issues come off the back of users encountering a number of problems yesterday in accessing Google's YouTube, Gmail and Google Drive services.

Complaints about problems with Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are piling up elsewhere. Due to the outage advertisers are losing money and it seems that the company is planning to issue refunds to the advertisers.

A report from IsitDownrRghtNow.com, a web traffic monitoring site, is reporting that the social media giant is "DOWN for everyone".

One said: "Messages are stuck on sending and after I refresh the other person's messages disappear".

Facebook is experiencing the worst outage in its history, with essential services left unusable for global users.

According to DownDetector, users all around the world are now experiencing problems with the platforms.

The story is developing... Problems range from pages not loading whatsoever to issues within Facebook Messenger.
