It seems to be a rough day in the social media world. A lot of Twitter users have been experiencing problems on and off, and some businesses with Facebook pages have been unable to post links throughout the day.

We noticed this ourselves at first, but then when searching the Twitterverse, saw others complaining about it as well.

Here are a few of those complaints. Let us know if you’ve been experiencing problems yourself.

I have a rough time posting on my facebook brand page today, anyone hear if there is something up with that? #facebook

I wonder how much web traffic this is costing everybody. Facebook can be a tremendous source of not only traffic for sites, but engagement with user around a site’s content. If Facebook doesn’t get this problem fixed soon, there will no doubt be plenty of irate businesses.

Regular status updates do appear to be working, as do links from personal profiles.

We’ve reached out to Facebook, and will update if we receive a comment.

    I was able to post links if I “x’ed” out the area with a thumbnail, description and link title. I hope this is fixed soon!

    Ditto. Only thing I could do is post a non-thumbnail link after trying all day with multiple browsers and computers.

    This is the second day in a row I have been unable to post any links on my organization’s facebook profile. I wonder why FB hasn’t come out with anything about it yet? Afraid of a stock price plummet? :-)

    I have been having this same experience for the past two days. I have found that if I do not use a link shortened via a 3rd party that it allows me to post, but it has to be using the original link.

    I am in the same boat. Am very frustrated that I cannot post, although glad to know I am not alone.

    Same here. Removing the thumbnail and title portion works most of the time. Hope FB resolves soon.

    I have not been able to post link to facebook for over a week now. Anyone with a solution?

    I’m having the same problem. It was fine a few days ago, now I can’t see my other posts and it won’t let me post anything else?? I can’t even use the “Report a Problem” link as it does nothing when I click on this. Extremely frustrating!
