Facebook users across WA and the world were typing collective OMGs this afternoon, with the Facebook website going down.

Users trying to log onto the site received a "sorry, something went wrong" message from the website, and the hashtag #facebookdown was quickly trending across the globe on Twitter.

According to website aussieoutages.com, reports of Facebook crashing began just before 4pm.

Europe also appears to be heavily affected.

A Facebook Australia spokeswoman confirmed they had received reports that some people are having trouble loading the site.

"We're actively investigating this issue," she said.
