Facebook and its other platforms, Instagram and Whatsapp, have been down for a few hours after failures with the company's servers.

A Facebook spokesman apologised for the inconvenience. The last noteworthy incident happened in March, when access to Facebook was restricted for some 24 hours.

Facebook is pulling a feature that allowed users to send money to friends through its Messenger app nearly a year and a half after launching it in the UK. The issues affected users in Asia, Europe and the US, according to the site.

The website wouldn't refresh, and messages weren't coming through, from roughly 6:30 AM EDT (New York time) to about 9:30 AM.
