It's not you. It's them.

Facebook suffered another systemwide outage this morning, preventing users form posting status updates.

On its desktop platform, users were hit with the following message when trying to update statuses:

"There was a problem updating your status. Please try again in a few minutes."

Users of the Facebook iPhone app didn't receive an error message, but status messages were never published.

According to mashable.com, "this one seems global—we've tested it from several IPs and received the same message."

During the outage, Facebook users were unable to share webpages or content with one another, nor could they upload photos or create photo albums.

By mid-morning, the errors appeared to be fixed, but that didn't prevent users from complaining on Twitter.
