Push the snooze alarm, take a shower and post to Facebook while you enjoy your morning coffee. That last part of a cherished morning routine was interrupted by an error message for much of Monday morning: "There was a problem updating your status. Please try again in a few minutes."

As of 10:50 a.m., the errors appeared to be fixed and Facebook users were back in action. However, that didn't prevent people flocking to their Twitter accounts to complain, enough so that #facebookdown is a top trending topic.

Though the status update option was down, Facebook users can still go about their business of searching through everyone's user profile and playing Candy Crush to their heart's content.
