Facebook went down briefly early Thursday morning, according to a report from USA Today.

For about half an hour, users who tried to access Facebook in the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Israel and India received the following message: “Sorry, something went wrong. We’re working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.”

The site is up and running again — after sending many internet users into a “blind panic”.

Problems were also reported across multiple nations in Asia and the Middle East, the report says.

Things should be back to normal at this point.
