Facebook posted to Twitter reassuring users that the site would be back online.

 

"We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing the Facebook family of apps. We’re working to resolve the issue as soon as possible," the Facebook account said on Twitter .

 

According to  downdetector.com , Facebook users in the United States are reporting issues with posting, live streaming features and a slew of other technical difficulties.
