As of Monday morning, Facebook was experiencing errors across the site. It wasn’t possible to post status updates, comments or photos and to send messages and likes as of 7 a.m.
Mashable was the first to report the issues, which included the “There was a problem updating your status. Please try again in a few minutes.” error popping up when users tried to update their statuses.
Facebook status update issues are not uncommon, according to Mashable, but this one seems global. The website claims to have tested Facebook from several IPs and received the same error message every time.
According to web service status tracker Downrightnow, Facebook is likely experiencing a service disruption.
Facebook did not immediately respond to Mashable’s requests for comment.
