Facebook experienced an outage this morning that meant users around the globe were unable to log on to the world's largest social network for 30 minutes.

'Earlier this morning, we experienced an issue that prevented people from posting to Facebook for a brief period of time,' a Facebook spokesperson said.

'We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100 per cent. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.'

While down the social network showed an error message on its home screen as users struggled to log on.

‘Sorry, something went wrong’ the message replacing Facebook's home page stated.

‘We’re working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.’

At the time users flocked to Twitter to vent their frustration at the lack of service.

'@facebook is still down! This is the longest I remember,' said one.

'facebook is down! I don't think I've ever seen that before,' said another.

Website downdetector.com said there were over 6,000 reports from users of Facebook being down during the outage.

78 per cent reported a total blackout, while 21 per cent were unable to log in.

This isn't the first time the company has experienced a major outage.

In October 2013 the social network was down for four hours, with the site blaming the outage on 'network maintenance.'

Facebook prevented people from posting new statuses, writing on walls and making payments.

Reports suggest the tech giant makes about £8,800 ($15,000) in revenue every 60 seconds.

This would suggest the latest outage lasting just 30 minutes cost the company almost £300,000 ($500,000).(Dailymail)
