If you were having trouble logging into your Facebook and Instagram accounts, it's not you. It's them. After being out much of Wednesday, Facebook started coming back to life around early Thursday after midnight ET for many users. This outage is one of the longest the Facebook app family has ever experienced in its 15 years of existence. Not being able to bombard their followers with pics of food, people turned to Twitter to complain about it. Here are some of the best reactions to the outage, so check your internet connection and continue scrolling to enjoy the fun!

According to Down Detector, the outage affected users in the US, Europe, South America, Australia and Asia. Moreover, users of Facebook-owned WhatsApp were having trouble sending photos on the app. Virtual reality company Oculus, also owned by Facebook, reported that its users were having trouble accessing and using its platform as well.

This isn't Facebook's first outage. In November the social network crashed due to a test the company itself was running. That breakdown lasted about 40 minutes. That same month, Facebook and Instagram were down for hours because of what Facebook said was a server configuration. This is, however, probably the biggest outage in Facebook's history. The previous record-holding outage occurred in 2008, when Facebook had just 125 million users (now it has more than 2.3 billion users, and Instagram has more than 1 billion).

So far, Facebook hasn't confirmed what caused the outages. In a statement, a network intelligence company called ThousandEyes said the issue appears to be internal, rather than a network or Internet delivery issue. "For example, we saw '500 internal server errors' from Facebook. Given the sheer scale and continuous changes that these web scale providers are constantly making to their applications and infrastructure, sometimes things break as a result of these changes, even in the most capable hands," wrote ThousandEyes VP of product marketing Alex Henthorn-Iwane.

I'd notice if Instagram was down way before I'd know if Facebook was down. Actually if it wasn't for the internet and websites like boredpanda, I probably wouldn't even know Facebook was down at all. I'd know if Instagram and Twitter was, though.
