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.



We have reached out to Facebook to determine the extent of the outage and will update this article when we learn more.

Update 3:56pm CT:Β A Facebook spokesperson told the Daily Dot in an email that the issues have now been fixed, and Facebook should be operating normally for users.
