iMessage and FaceTime are both offline for "some users", according to Apple's iCloud System Status page.

The outage began just after noon Pacific time today, and the company has not given any indication of when service will be restored. Affected users will see iMessages fail to send and FaceTime calls fail to connect.

Got a FaceTime multi-hour call going between Canada and Singapore right now. Working great, no problems. Maybe it's just the initial sign-in process that's broken, but established connnections aren't affected.

People still use FaceTime ?

The video and audio quality, and connection handling is better than Skype.

I imagine more and more people are using FaceTime all the time. It's pretty sweet.

I find it amusing people saying "Down in ________"..... this [most likely] has nothing to do with your geographic location, but rather is a problem at Apple's centralized data centres.

Apple doesn't have a single centralized data center. It isn't uncommon for parts of Apple's datacenters to be working perfectly and not others, thus affecting only certain areas.
