Facebook and Instagram currently offline [Update: Restored]

Update: Both Facebook and Instagram are back online.

Facebook and Instagram, the popular social network and it's photo-centric sub-division, are currently offline. If you've been trying to check your feeds and you've been getting errors, don't worry — it's them, not you.

Both Facebook and Instagram have solid infrastructures and seldom experience downtime. I'm still not able to access either but there's no doubt they're working to restore service as quickly as possible. And in the meantime, if your statuses and photos are piling up, you can still get your social fix on Twitter.

Let me know if you can get to Instagram or Facebook and, if not, when it comes back online for you.
