NEW YORK — Popular social networking site Facebook was down Thursday afternoon but appears to be working again, according to a site that tracks users reporting problems.

The number of reported issues with Facebook spiked into the hundreds on DownDetector about 12:30 p.m. Attempts by PIX11 News to load were met with an error message.

“Sorry, something went wrong,” the page read. “We’re working on it and we’ll get it fixed as soon as we can.”

Shortly after 1 p.m., users reported having regained access to the site.
