In a related development, Facebook released the biannual Transparency Report.

"We know some people are having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps", Facebook said on its official Twitter handle around 9:00 p.m.

Facebook's outage appears to be global.

Users looking for answers headed to Twitter, where the #facebookdown hashtag rapidly started trending.

Well, the social media giant is down again, along with its counterpart, Instagram. "We're working to resolve the issue as soon as possible", a Facebook spokesperson told ABC News in an email Tuesday morning. Facebook has acknowledged the problem and is working on a fix.
