There were also reports that Twitter too suffered technical issues on Tuesday, which was reportedly caused by the amount of people taking to the site to report that Facebook was offline, with #Facebookdown quickly becoming the top trending hashtag on the microblogging platform.
Outages were reported across Queensland and even as far away as New Zealand and Malaysia.
According to a map shared by DownDetector, the Facebook outage spread across countries like Canada, parts of the US, Mexico, Australia and later spread to Asian countries like Japan, Malaysia and Indonesia. Channel NewsAsia first noticed issues with the website at 9.15am.
