Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp back in action after a short mass outage


The social media platforms are also subject to downtimes due to power failure, hardware failure, and other related causes. Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp had suffered a mass outage on Thursday. The users took to social media platforms like Twitter and revealed a broad pattern of mass outage unavailability. It is to be noted that Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp belong to same group of companies and hence there is no surprise.

Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp are facing acute downtime within one month. Even though the issue was rectified quickly by the team despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the issue had caused severe tension among users. You should note that influencers depend upon Instagram to spread viral information. You should note that most of the campaigns are time-bound and hence there are people affected by the outage.

According to unverified sources, the social media giants forgot to pay hosting fees and this has resulted in an outage. The chances are bleak because the Facebook companies have their own data center.

The latest outage has not affected global users because there were reports of scattered availability for the services. The company confirmed the downtime but termed the whole development as isolated cases. The services are now restored for Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. If you still face the problem, then you should check your connectivity.
