What Do We Think About This Issue

Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp are some of the most used apps and services across the globe, and all three services are owned by Facebook. In the last few years, these services has had some glitches a handful of times. However, for the first time, all three services have been down (some of the functions did not work) for a long time, which is a big set back to a big corporate like Facebook.

Though Facebook has not shared the root cause for the interruption, it looks like, there was some issue with the data centre, as, all three services belong to the same company. Stay tuned to GizBot to learn more about this fiasco.
