WhatsApp, Instagram have gone down; This time in this country
WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook fell again in the final hours of October 28 in the UK.
WhatsApp seems to be experiencing a lot of technical difficulties lately. Right after the 2 hour outage a few days ago, WhatsApp crashed again. And not just WhatsApp, even Instagram and Facebook also fell. The outage was mostly seen in the UK and only lasted a short time. However, this ended up affecting many complaining users on social media platforms.
The outage was mostly seen in the UK and resulted in the unavailability of all Meta services. A meta spokesperson said in a statement to Express.co.uk: “Earlier today, a configuration change caused some people difficulty accessing our products. We have resolved the issue as quickly as possible for everyone involved, and we apologize for the inconvenience.”
WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook are back down
Previously, WhatsApp alone faced a severe outage in which it was unavailable to all users on Tuesday. The messaging app did not allow users to send messages, make voice and video calls, or even send files to anyone. The outage lasted more than two hours before Meta officials managed to get WhatsApp back online.
In the event of such mega outages, you must always rely on an alternative service to continue your conversations and communications. WhatsApp has a host of alternative services that you can jump on in an emergency. Your phone comes with a built-in SMS service that lets you send text messages and even files if your device supports RCS. iPhone users can always rely on iMessage service to send texts as well as media files to other iPhone users. You can use Telegram, Signal, and other messaging apps to send messages in such situations.
On the other hand, the social media world has seen a lot of action lately with Elon Musk taking over Twitter. After apparently firing Parag Agarwal and other top Twitter brass, Musk has taken command of the bluebird and plans to incorporate some changes to the platform.
