WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram are all down once more!


Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram were down again in the early hours of October 9, just days after the massive social media outage. Several users flocked to Twitter to confirm that Facebook’s three primary services were down again throughout the world. This time, though, the outage was shorter in duration and only affected a lesser number of users.

Out of the three, Instagram was the most severely impacted by the outage, receiving the most complaints. Instagram was down for about two hours, according to Downdetector, with nearly 33,000 users affected at the time.

All three services, however, have now been restored. We checked WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram and they are all operational.

Several users turned to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction, and Facebook quickly responded, promising a repair.

“We’re aware that certain of our apps and products aren’t working for some people. “We’re striving to restore normalcy as soon as possible, and we regret any disruption,” Facebook added.

However, the disruption was minor in comparison to the one that occurred on Monday, which shut down all three platforms for six hours. Facebook claimed at the time that a significant DNS issue on its servers had wiped away all paths to its domains. The outage was so severe that it also affected the company’s internal network, causing a delay in resolving the issue.

According to reports, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg lost $6 billion as a result of the 6-hour outage on Monday.
