We are currently investigating an issue involving the publishing of Facebook updates containing tags (`@` mentions).

The error you will see within the queue on updates that fail as a result of this issue will be the following: `Oh dear, looks like Facebook may be having some troubles right now.

A report has been logged with the Facebook team and we're awaiting a solution.
