Don’t worry, you are not the only one having problems loading Facebook.

According to downdetector.com, a Facebook outage has been affecting parts of Europe and North America since 8:36 a.m. ET today.

The U.K., the Netherlands, Poland, and Northeastern United States seem to be getting hit the hardest based on the site’s outage heat map.

The number of problems reported spiked in the last few hours to more than 150. That is still small compared to the widespread outage that hit Facebook in May.

But people have still flocked to Twitter with the hashtag #Facebookdown to voice their anger and concern.
