(PIX11) — Facebook was down shortly Wednesday afternoon.

It is unclear why the popular social media site was not working, but several Facebook users went to Twitter to express their frustrations. Others were more positive about Facebook’s abrupt unavailability.

The tweets continued as Facebook’s website became available again. Several users used the hashtag #facebookback.

In August, Facebook users were unable to use the website for almost an hour. The website wrote on their developer page “Facebook is currently experiencing an issue that is affecting all API and web surfaces. Our engineers detected the issue quickly and are working to resolve it ASAP. We’ll update shortly.”
