Users worldwide are reporting that YouTube is down for many people. The reason is not yet known, but reports are coming in fast worldwide. This is unusual for one of the most popular websites in the world. So far, YouTube hasn’t issued an official statement about what happened except to note that they are working on the problem. Although the site may have occasionally had brief issues in the past, being down this long is very rare. Some regions are reporting that the site is beginning to start working correctly again as of about 10 p.m. Eastern, but others are still having issues. This is a developing story.
YouTube Says It Is Working on the Issue, But Hasn’t Identified the Cause of the Problem
YouTube hasn’t identified the problem yet, but did acknowledge on Twitter that they are working on the issue. They wrote: “Thanks for your reports about YouTube, YouTube TV and YouTube Music access issues. We’re working on resolving this and will let you know once fixed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you updated.”
