'We are planning to introduce Dark Mode after we've finished rolling out the new Messenger to everyone globally, ' Facebook wrote. As it turns out, the company was doing some routine tests on the server, which they previously didn't anticipate might affect their social media sites, but it did.

Facebook said Tuesday users were having trouble accessing the social network and its other applications such as Instagram, but did not explain the cause of the outages.

The outage comes one day after the social media juggernaut launched a new feature, allowing users to delete messages on Messenger after sending them. "We're sorry for the inconvenience", a Facebook spokesperson told USA Today. Contributions of 200 words or more will be considered for publication.
