The outage started around 8:20 a.m. ET, according to DownDetector.com, a site that monitors service disruptions. Facebook says "We are now experiencing an increased level of API errors". When accessing Instagram the same way, a message that states "Oops, an error occured" pops up on the screen. Many are taking to Twitter to see if that site is also down, as seen above.
