If you can't post a new status on Facebook, it's not you.

Facebook and Facebook-owned photo app Instagram are down for some users on Wednesday. The social networks have been having issues since around 9 a.m. PT, according to tracking site Down Detecter. Some users have posted on Twitter that they're seeing a message saying Facebook is "down for maintenance."

Facebook confirmed the outages.

The outage affected users in the US, Europe, South America, Australia and Asia, according to a map by Down Detector. Users of Facebook-owned WhatsApp were also reporting that they were having trouble sending photos on the app.

This isn't Facebook's first outage. In November the social network went down in a mishap caused by a test the company was running. That outage lasted about 40 minutes. That same month, Facebook and Instagram were down for hours because of what Facebook said was a server configuration.

Same problem on the FB app actually. Looks like it wasn't for all users.
