#DeleteFacebook trends on Twitter after DNS-related outage took down Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp for more than 3 hours.
A number of conspiracies have developed after the world-famous social media platforms are down.
Facebook in a statement said that it is aware of the ongoing issues with its site and is working to fix them.
The Facebook app, as well as Instagram and WhatsApp, have all stopped working in a widespread and major outage on Monday night.
A company spokesperson said that it apologized for the problem but gave no indication of why the outage began or how long it might take to fix.

While we can't all #DeleteFacebook, we can all cut our use of it, make sure we don't advertise on it, or consume anything that has been advertised on #Facebook.— Rabbi E. Poupko- UNITED AGAINST ANTISEMITISM (@RabbiPoupko) October 4, 2021
The platform has caused too many deaths, illness, destruction, and undoing of our democracy.
