Update: A Facebook spokesperson has now been in touch to say that the problem should be fixed for all users: “Earlier this morning, while performing some network maintenance, we experienced an issue that prevented some users from posting to Facebook for a brief period of time. We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100%. We’re sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused.”
Original story: A number of Facebook users have taken to the Internet to query whether they are the only ones currently unable to post to Facebook. If you’re in that group, don’t worry, you’re not alone. For the past couple of hours, Facebook users have been met with the error messages: “There was a problem updating your status. Please try again in a few minutes” and “The message could not be posted to this timeline”, meaning that, effectively, no new content or updates can be shared across the social network.
