Although, only some users are seeing this issue which is only appearing on some parts of the site but if you post statuses on Facebook but find it disappearing almost immediately then you are affected as well.

Facebook shared a post on its developer site saying it is aware of the issue and is investigating it, but suggests that it has no fix at the moment.

“We are currently experiencing an increased level of API errors,” it posted on the status page. “We are investigating the cause and we’ll post updates when we have more information.”

At the time of publication, the developer page said the problems started two hours earlier and described them as “ongoing”.

The last update was posted five minutes before this post and reads “We are continuing to work on resolving this issue. We will share further updates soon.”

Obviously, if these issues aren’t fixed in time, it might have negative impact on the site as billions of people, organizations and companies make use of it daily. 

hose affected were shown a blank page, with nothing loading. Others reported that they could only load specific parts of the site or app.

Some found the site working entirely normally until they tried to post something, at which point it broke down or disappears.

The issues were seen across the world, though not for all users. The website Down Detector showed thousands of people complaining about the issues.

Almost 90 per cent of problems on Facebook in the UK were reported as total blackouts or users being unable to log in, while on Instagram the core issue was with its news feed.

Facebook confirmed on its developer page that it was experiencing “an increased number of API errors”. It was investigating the problem and would provide an update when it was identified, it wrote.

It’s rare that the site – used by more than a billion people in countries around the world – breaks. But because of its huge size, any outage can be hugely significant, even if it is down for just moments.

The problems did appear to be focused in the US and Europe. But that’s probably a consequence of the timezones in which people are awake, since the problems do appear to be happening around the world.
