(USA Today) -- Had trouble with Facebook Monday morning? It seems you weren't alone.

Some users received errors Monday morning whenever they try to share a status update or send messages to friends. When attempting to post an update, users may see a message like "there was an error updating your status."

In a statement issued Monday, Facebook says the errors have been fixed. "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," reads the statement. "We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100%."

News of Facebook issues first surfaced through a series of posts on Twitter from users complaining of issues with posting status updates or even liking content from friends.
