Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are experiencing technical problems this afternoon, leaving users across the globe frustrated.

There was no immediate word on the cause of the outage from Facebook, which owns all three services. The desktop version of Facebook isn't working for some users in India, but the mobile app remains unaffected.

On Twitter, the hashtags #Facebookdown and #Instagramdown were still trending as of 8pm. At the time, the social network had said that the outages, which affected users and advertisers worldwide, resulted from a "server configuration change", AP had reported.

The outages, which started at about 12.30pm South African time, were still not resolved an hour later. Instagram outage issues have also hit parts of Asia.

There aren't any official announcements from Facebook just yet. "Not good for those who do social media work, like me".
