No further information has been provided on what is causing tonight's outage, how long it will last.

So many people were talking about the outage, the hashtag #YouTubeDOWN was trending on Twitter.

YouTube was created in February 2005 by three former PayPal employees who needed a way to share a video with each other.

As of the time of publication, some site functionality had been restored, but videos would only display playback errors and many components of the site remain missing.

CBS News has reached out to YouTube for comment. With the exception of China and North Korea, the website is available around the world in 80 different languages.
