Hacker Attack? Facebook and Instagram Down

Facebook and Instagram two of the most popular social networking sites, are experiencing technical difficulties on Tuesday.  Both sites went down around 12:50 am  Eastern Time.

Users who try to enter the sites are denied access. Facebook said it is trying to work out the technical problems.

"Sorry, something went wrong. We're working on it and we'll get it fixed as soon as we can," Facebook said on its website.

Users from the United States and India reported that they were unable to log on to the website.

Just yesterday Facebook censored itself to be in compliance with Turkish law which prohibits insults to the Prophet Mohammed, did hackers attack Facebook over this censorship?

Facebook was up and running again as of 2:15 am.  This marked one of the longest down times in it's history.
