So the UK has voted to leave the EU in a referendum by 52% to 48%. Prime Minister David Cameron says he'll step down later this year.

Turnout was huge - more than 70% of people who were registered to vote did so.

Scotland, Northern Ireland and London wanted to stay in the EU, but Wales and large parts of England voted out.

Social media is a minefield, obviously. Here's what you're saying.
