Facebook seemingly went down for thousands of users on Wednesday afternoon, based on reports submitted to Down Detector.

More than 13,000 users reported issues using the site during a 15-minute time span starting at about 2:30 p.m. EST.

After the short time period, many users returned to report that Facebook was working normally again, but a handful of reports continued to trickle in. About 1,000 Instagram users reported issues with the app at about 11 a.m. EST on Wednesday, while WhatsApp users did not appear to have any issues. Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp all suffered from downtime on April 14.

Business Insider has reached out to Facebook for a comment on the apparent downtime but did not immediately hear back.
