Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger went down for millions of users globally on Monday October 4 evening, as most of the users were unable to send or receive messages on social media platforms.
Andy Stone, Facebook Communications Executive tweeted, “We are aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience.”
People flocked to Twitter to complain about issues with Facebook family apps, including the inability to share memes and GIFs.
“All of us coming to Twitter to see if Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook are really down,” a user tweeted.
“Instagram down, Facebook down, WhatsApp down. You know who’s in charge now?” another user tweeted.
Another user posted, “Everyone rushing to Twitter to see if WhatsApp is actually down.”
Replying to it, Chief Executive Officer of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg has written “Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger are coming back online now. Sorry for the disruption today– I know how much you rely on our services to stay connected with the people you care about.”
Here we can recall that in April, Facebook and Instagram went down for millions of users for a couple of hours in various parts of the world.
However, at present, things are back to normal but the Twitter witnessed an outage including by sharing memes, and mocking the service provided by the social networking giant.
