The national nightmare is over. Facebook is back.
On Monday, the world came to a screeching halt. Facebook was down for millions of users across the world, marking the third outage in as many weeks.
The outage was first reported around 3:03 p.m. ET. Most users attempting to load the social networking website were getting error messages.
The social media site blamed the outage on "a configuration issue."
Facebook was up and running again around 3:45 p.m.
