Panic over.

Facebook is now 'back' for some users and it appears the social network is slowly resuming normal functionality.

Although this Monday afternoon may have appeared like any other for those not on Facebook, many users lamented the loss of the social network on Twitter.

Facebook was not ‘down’ as such: users were still able to browse posts and click through their newsfeed, but likes, comments, posts and shares were not available.

Personal accounts and pages were met with the error notice “There was a problem updating your status. Please try again in a few minutes.”
