Facebook appears to be down for thousands of people who aren’t able to view their own photos, upload photos, or add albums to their personal accounts, groups, or pages. According to Down Detector, more than 5,000 users from all over the globe have reported having issues with Facebook, specifically when it comes to uploading and viewing pictures.
Over the past couple of weeks, Facebook has had intermittent issues having to do with various aspects of the platform. Though frustrating, the issues usually resolve within a short period of time and rarely last more than a couple of hours at most.
Here’s what you need to know:
The Facebook issues on Down Detector were first reported around 10 a.m. Eastern and don’t seem to be resolved just yet. Facebook users have said that they are unable to view existing photos while others are having trouble uploading new photos or albums.
Some photos appear with a broken script symbol while others simply show a reload button in the center of where the photo should be. Other users aren’t even able to see their profile photos, which appear to also be experiencing issues.
