Last October, major Facebook-owned social platforms — Instagram, Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, and Oculus VR — faced a global outage. The outage lasted almost six hours and turned out to be one of the longest outages in the company’s history. Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, released a statement on the platform apologizing for the outage.
He wrote: “Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger are now coming back online. Sorry to intrude today – I know how much you rely on our services to keep you connected with the people you care about.”
