Keep getting this error while trying to update Bintulu.Org page.

Facebook keep saying “There was a problem updating your status. Please try again in a few minutes”. Encountered this problem starting this morning around 8.30am Malaysia Time.

I thought it was just me – but it seems widespread according to this Wall Street Journal’s Digits blog post.

A Facebook spokesperson said the issue is resolved, according to Digits blog. “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,” the spokesperson wrote in an email. “We resolved the issue quickly, and we are now back to 100%. We’re sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused.”

But that doesn’t seem to be in my case. I keep getting the error especially when inserting an external link on the status update.

It seems to work fine without an external link.
