Well apparently it was not a Zimbabwean thing, neither had anyone hacked our page as some anticipated, Infact as we had earlier on highlighted, it was a global down time for Facebook .
here is the first update from Facebook spokesman on the matter.
Update 1: In the meanwhile, we’ve found a temporary workaround that might work people in charge of managing Facebook pages.
In the first instance, you’ll need to switch to the account you use to manage your Page and find an old unpublished Note. Then you simply need to update it with the new info and post as normal.
Unfortunately we missed this update we could have tried it then while Facebok was still down.
then there was this update
Update 2: It seems that some users are finding that they can now post, comment and ‘like’ Facebook posts once again, suggesting that the current hiccups are coming to an end. Is yours working?
A number of Facebook users have taken to the Internet to query whether they are the only ones currently unable to post to Facebook. If you’re in that group, don’t worry, you’re not alone.
For the past couple of hours, Facebook users have been met with the error messages: “There was a problem updating your status. Please try again in a few minutes” and “The message could not be posted to this timeline”, meaning that, effectively, no new content or updates can be shared across the social network.
Then fnally this
Ofcourse on the Facebook page, there were delays on updates so we had to fil this form which we knew we were never going to be responded to, but we filled it up anyway
Update 3: A Facebook spokesperson has now been in touch to say that the problem should be fixed for all users:
“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.”
