If Facebook is frustrating you this morning, you’re not the only one. Facebook is not allowing anyone to post status updates or like posts for many users.

People trying to post a status update got an error message. That message seems to have changed at least once, then no error message appeared at all and posts would not go through.

According to Mashable, the site has been down for at least an hour and says no one from Facebook has responded to their request for details.

According to, a website that tracks outages, Facebook is experiencing an outage.

It appears this outage is global.

We will have more information on this developing situation.
