Popular and controversial social media company Facebook and all of its own social platforms are facing a server outage/downtime as we write here. WhatsApp and Instagram took to their respective Twitter handle to confirm they’re down and currently working to get back to their feet. And yes, Facebook too asserted to the public on Twitter that they are aware of the scenario and working to get their apps back in form.
Isn’t it quite comical to see the big three giants hold on to the competition (Twitter) to provide its users a reassurance? Anyways, we too have not been able to access WhatsApp for some time now and hope everything gets fixed as soon as possible. Until then, all you Apple users, jump to iMessage to stay connected.
We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience.
