DENVER - Did you update your Facebook status this morning?
Thousands of people trying to post a status update on Monday morning got a message that said, "There was a problem updating your status. Please try again in a few minutes."
The intermittent problem lasted more than three hours. By 8:30 a.m. MT, 7NEWS viewers were starting to report that they could post without problems.
During the outage, 7NEWS viewers were able to send private messages to 7NEWS, but most could not hit like or post a comment on their pages.
