Earlier this morning, we experienced an issue that prevented people from posting to Facebook for a brief period of time. We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100 percent. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

For proof of the inconvenience it caused, one need look no further than Twitter.

When facebook was down people were crying in the streets shoving their phones into eachothers faces shouting “DO YOU LIKE THIS! DO YOU?!”
