Facebook users may have noticed a brief outage Wednesday afternoon.

According to CNBC, the social media network went dark for roughly 20 minutes.

“Earlier today we encountered an error while making an infrastructure configuration change that briefly made it difficult for people to access Facebook. We immediately discovered the issue and fixed it, and everyone should now be able to connect,” a spokesman said in a statement.

Facebook also suffered similar outages in August and June.
