The world's largest social network is experiencing global outages on Wednesday.

Facebook users around the world are having problem accessing the services on its apps and website. Other platforms owned by the tech giant, like Instagram and WhatsApp, are also affected by the outage. 

Facebook needed to rely on Twitter to tell users they are aware of the outages and is working to resolve the issue.

The outages began Wednesday afternoon. 

Despite some early online rumors that the outages were the result of a distributed denial-of-service (DDos) attack — a type of hack in which attackers flood a company's network — Facebook said in another tweet that "the issue is not related to a DDoS attack."
