COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - If you've been having trouble logging in to your Facebook or Instagram accounts, you're not alone.

The hashtag #FacebookDown was trending on Twitter Tuesday morning as users reported getting error messages or were unable to scroll through their feed or post updates. Soon after, #InstagramDown also began showing up in tweets and posts.

Neither of the social media sites has commented on the trouble, but DownDetector.com reports users began noticing problems around 5:30 a.m. Colorado time.
