Here we go... again.

Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp are down for users around the world.


Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp are all experiencing issues this morning for users worldwide. Facebook and Instagram are both inaccessible, with news feeds refusing to refresh and the main Facebook.com domain unavailable. WhatsApp messages aren’t being sent or received, and users of Facebook’s main services (Facebook owns Instagram and WhatsApp) have headed to Twitter to share that they’re having issues.

Last time this happened a few weeks ago, we speculated that it was a bit too coincidental...

Facebook companies see "server failure" on same day subpoenas issued over violation of privacy.

Many of you in the previous thread felt that the excuse they were providing was not very believable.

Whats the excuse gonna be this time?

We should probably do some research to determine whether any new indictments have been handed down.

Two choices I guess , it's either a criminal hack or a cyber warfare test , given the state of world affairs right now I lean to the latter.

Well, that explains it. I just tried to log onto facebook just now, to see if my sis left me a message on Messenger. Thought it was my internet connection. Not surprised one bit, considering all the negative press that Zuckerberg has received over his "survelliance" spy platform.

Don't worry, they are just wiping down the servers - you know, like with a rag......

Mine says, "Your internet access is blocked." err_network_access_denied

Hmmm. Let's try the VPN. Now it says, "This site cannot be reached." err_connection_timed_out.

That is the danger of becoming dependent on these platforms. More people should keep homing pigeons! Luckily there are alternatives

This is what people get for needing this and relying on this crap.

Its a 1st world problem when someone can't access a site to show a picture of their ass for the attention.
God forbid nobody is able to hit a like button somewhere!!

Too many people can't do a damn thing without being connected.

People are just as bad when ATS goes down, I've seen plenty of threads like that over the years.
I also see people on ATS criticising 'likes' so I have to ask how is it any different to the star and flag system here.
FB is superior in the sense that at least people own their likes because you can see who agrees or not, so before anyone gets too smug about posting here instead of FB just ask yourself about the back patting stars, no difference as far as I see things.

...oh, FB is working fine for me in the UK.
