While we can't say exactly what is wrong with it, 80 percent of those reporting a problem said they were unable to send or receive messages, whereas 20 percent of those who complained said they couldn't even log in.
Obviously, people have been turning to the other social media platforms that are still working to complain about the problems.
One person on Twitter asked: "Is Facebook Messenger down? I cannot send and receive messages!"
Another said: "Either Facebook messenger is down on my phone or my wifi is extremely poor this morn. Let me text my friends back!"
A third wrote: "Yeah so Facebook messenger be down or I'm really trippin."
As well as Messenger being on the fritz, Down Detector has also issued warnings for Facebook and Instagram too, although those appear to be less widespread.
