It wasn’t just you who noticed that your Facebook page and Instagram pages weren’t loading today.

The social media platforms went dark for many across North American and Europe on Wednesday morning.

This is an unfortunate event for Facebook given the criticisms it is facing over alleged false news reports and the role it may have had on the presidential election.

Deadline.com reports the sites went dark at about 11 am EST in portions of the United States, mostly the east and west coasts, and Europe.

The hashtag #facebookdown was trending on Twitter.

It appears that the problem has been resolved and feeds are loading again at least for us here at San Diego Gay and Lesbian News.
