Applications like Spotify, TikTok, Pinterest and Tinder has stopped working for Apple iPhone users.
While the issue does not seem to be affecting Android phone users, or the desktop based Spotify player.
Spin's Technology Correspondent Jess Kelly says this has already happened this year:
"This is not the first time this has happened this year alone."
"The Facebook Software Development Kit is causing apps like TikTok, Spotify and even Tinder to crash - specifically on iPhones."
"Facebook say they're aware of it, and are acknowledging that the issue is on their side."

Facebook Aware Of The Issue
Facebook says it is aware of the issue and is investigating.
“We’re aware that some applications are currently affected by an issue in our Facebook iOS SDK."
The spokesperson added that they're "working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.”
Reports say the apps are crashing immediately when they're opened on an iPhone.
So for example, Spotify is showing the green logo, then sending the user back to their home screen.
Meanwhile people on Twitter are pretty upset.
