Paris, France — A massive outage knocked Google services, including Gmail and video sharing platform YouTube, offline across much of the globe Monday.

Within minutes, social media sites were awash with hashtags including #googledown and #YouTubeDOWN as hundreds of millions of internet users tried vainly to connect to the US search engine.

Google indicated the outage had affected all of its services for the “majority” of users.
