Social media behemoth Facebook is currently experiencing some problems and people aren't taking it well.

The site began having having technical troubles on Saturday afternoon, with thousands of users reporting that they are unable to publish, like or share posts.

Down Detector, a site that tracks outages, reported a large spike in reports of outages at around 2pm GMT.

Naturally, in times of trouble, Facebook users have turned to their old friend Twitter to share their thoughts on the outage.

Some people are just plain bored without the site.

Others have been using it as an indicator to see if everyone else is having the same problem.

Many people just miss Instagram, which appears to also be affected by the technical difficulties.

But mostly, people are just a little stressed.

Some people have some wild theories...

But let's get back to panicking.
