Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp are now back. However, this was one of the longest downtime moments for Mark Zuckerberg’s social media and messaging empire. Yes, in case you didn’t know – all four apps (amongst others) are under the Facebook umbrella.
But what did people do when they needed to communicate when the world’s most popular messaging apps – WhatsApp and Facebook’s Messenger were gone for about six hours?
Backstory time: I have the terrible habit of testing my internet connection by refreshing my Instagram feed. I tried on Wi-Fi, then on 4G. It didn’t work. I tried again, again, and again. I went for a walk. Came back – still nothing.
