Here is a compilation of some of the best tweets to come out of the trending #facebookdown on Twitter this morning.

Down Detector says Facebook has been having issues since 11:20 p.m. eastern time on Friday according to a tweet. Most of the issues appear to be affecting users in the northeastern United States and the Midwest. Do Instagram and Facebook load for you?

Facebook has not said what is causing the issues or when users can expect the problems to be fixed.
