Facebook has suffered a major outage, along with Instagram and WhatsApp.

Users of the social media sites around the world appear to be affected.

Facebook said it was aware that some people were having trouble accessing company's apps and products.

Instagram, owned by Facebook, also stopped working and the company tweeted it was aware users were having issues.

The companies have not given a reason for the outages, though they follow many high-profile denial of service attacks around the world, including some that have hit banks and government agency sites in New Zealand.

User reports indicated problems with Twitter, Google and Amazon Web Services, according to Downdectector, which collects status information on websites and services.
