Facebook.com and all activity on the Facebook app ceased around 2:05 p.m. CST. Network activity resumed around 3:30 p.m. on the world’s largest and most-used social media network.

Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, also went down. It is unclear whether the outage is due to technical problems, a hacker attack, or something else. Facebook is yet to comment.
