All the Mark Zuckerberg intertwined owned apps, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp messenger servers are down.
TechBooky reports that popular messaging app ,WhatsApp began developing a hitch in the afternoon of Monday, with several users complaining of undelivered messages and stuck in messages.
A quick look at its sister app, Instagram indicated that the news feed has stopped loading new messages.
This is applicable to Facebook on both it’s official app and it’s Messenger app, with visitors to the Facebook.com being availed of an error message indicating that their browsers could not connect.
Although shutdowns by Facebook are rare but the impact usually tend to be vast as it relatively affects three of the world most popular app.
Facebook Inc has often times been cryptic about the causes of its shutdown issues, with the company rarely giving explanations even when they have been fixed.
It would be recalled that in 2019, it suffered its biggest outage in years – and said only that it had “triggered an issue” during “routine maintenance operations”.
Its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, had in 2019 in a leaked transcript published in The Verge noted that such outages are a “big deal”. Any problems can often lead people to start using competitors instead, and noted that it can take “months” to win back trust and get people back on Facebook’s platforms – if they come back at all.
