Facebook’s biggest nightmare came true early Monday morning, as the site wasn’t functioning for several users all over the world. While many users reported not being able to post status updates, some couldn’t like, comment or post others’ content, or even get into their account. Users have also said that scheduled page posts have failed in this time, as well as other page management actions.

A Facebook spokesperson told Inside Facebook that the matter has been resolved:

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.

According to downrightnow.com, the service disruption started at around 4:30 a.m. PST.
