It has been nearly 6 hours since Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp went down for almost everyone around the world. Facebook’s latest global outage might be the longest outage we have ever seen which has started some wild conspiracy theories. The outage is so big that it has forced Facebook to use Twitter and deliver news updates to its users.

The company says they haven’t found any signs that the outage is linked to the DDoS attack that happened earlier today. However, Facebook’s outage happened less than 24 hours after Google’s ecosystem went down for more than an hour yesterday. This could be just a coincidence or it might be that someone found loopholes in two of the biggest internet giants in the world.

Facebook might be just a way for users to connect and stay in touch with each other but is a major platform for advertisers. Due to the outage advertisers are losing money and it seems that the company is planning to issue refunds to the advertisers.



While it has been probably the worst day for Facebook engineers, Twitter users are having a picnic with users hoping to the platform to check what happened to Facebook and most importantly make memes out of it. There are a lot of theories going around but we can’t be sure of anything unless Facebook says so. Facebook is trying to iron out the issues and get users back online as soon as possible. If you’re facing the issue- sit tight and maybe have a little fun on Twitter.
