    PORTLAND, Ore. – Facebook users are facing problems with posting to the social sites on Wednesday, and the company has not yet said when they could be back online.

    People on Instagram and WhatsApp (which are owned by Facebook) also saw similar errors when trying to post photos or videos.

    A Facebook spokesperson said the issues started about 9:30 a.m., and that their team is “investigating the issue and working on a resolution.”

    At this point, they have not said when the problems will be fixed. At about noon they said it is not related to a DDoS attack.

    Frustrated by the outage, many people got on Twitter to vent:
