Social media giant Facebook was inaccessible around the globe on Tuesday, users said.

Bangkok Post said the reports of issues were noted on 2100 GMT or about 4:00 a.m. in Thailand. This reportedly lasted for about 90 minutes.

Facebook has yet to issue a statement explaining the incident, apart from the apology they have issued for the social media users who were not able to access their accounts.

“We quickly investigated and started restoring access, and we have nearly fixed the issue for everyone. We’re sorry for the inconvenience,” a Facebook spokesperson said in news reports.

A news report said that users have taken their frustrations to Twitter as they complained of their inability to access their respective accounts.

Both the mobile and web were reportedly affected by what appeared to be an outage.

Another news report noted that when people visited the website, they were greeted with a message that read: “Your account is currently unavailable due to a site issue. We expect this to be resolved shortly. Please try again in a few minutes.”

Countries who have experienced difficulties to log in are: US, Europe, and parts of Australia, Philippines, and India.

Apart from Facebook, Instagram also reportedly crashed and were inaccessible to its users.

“I love how when Instagram or Facebook are down (or both in this case) everyone comes running to twitter like they’re gasping for air,” one netizen noted.
