Facebook users had trouble accessing the social media website Monday morning, with many receiving an error messages stating, "An error occurred. Please try again later." Some who were able to log on to the site found they were unable to post a status update, instead receiving an error message which read, "There was a problem updating your status. Please try again later."
As of 9:30 a.m. ET, the website Down For Everyone Or Just Me reported that Facebook is, indeed, down. NBC News has contacted Facebook and will update this post when we hear back.
