Twitter Enjoys A Hilarious Meme Fest As Facebook, Instagram & WhatsApp Face Global Outage

The social media networks have become an important part of our lives nowadays and they are used for not just communication but also business purposes as there are many organizations that are dependent on few social media networks for their smooth functioning.

Yesterday, the social media network Facebook, photo-sharing platform Instagram and messaging platform WhatsApp faced global outage because of which many online users were not able to use the services of these three platforms. Many users took to micro-blogging site Twitter to express their annoyance and complained on not being able to use these apps.

All the three apps issued statements on Twitter regarding their non-functioning:

Here is what Instagram tweeted, “Instagram and friends are having a little bit of a hard time right now, and you may be having issues using them. Bear with us, we’re on it! #instagramdown”.

WhatsApp’s tweet read, “We’re aware that some people are experiencing issues with WhatsApp at the moment. We’re working to get things back to normal and will send an update here as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience!”

This is what Facebook wrote on Twitter, “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.”

The chance of cyber attack was denied by the security experts as the technologies used in all the three platforms are different so it is highly impossible to hack all three at the same time. Facebook which owns Instagram and WhatsApp stated that the outage happened due to internal technical issue and it also made it clear that there is no proof of user data being compromised.

Things turned back to normal after around 6 hours and it was one of the longest outages of the year. Miffed netizens expressed their frustration on Twitter but there were some who showed creativity and shared some funny memes in this regard that will make you go ROFL:

The Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg made an apology to all the online users and stated, “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.”

The shares of Facebook also went down because of outage and it made Mark Zuckerberg bear a loss of around $7bn.

Well, it will not be wrong to say that such an outage brings life of netizens to halt to some extent and hopefully we don’t experience any more outage this year!
