Are you wondering what ever happened to your favorite social media platforms few days ago?
For most of July 3 , Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp were having fits. None of the sites were able to load new images and had trouble displaying photographs. Late on July 3, the services were back up. We still don’t know what went wrong.
Facebook merely stated, “Earlier today, some people and businesses experienced trouble uploading or sending images, videos and other files on our apps and platforms. The issue has since been resolved and we should be back at 100% for everyone. We’re sorry for any inconvenience.”
Facebook added “During one of our routine maintenance operations, we triggered an issue that is making it difficult for some people to upload or send photos and videos. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and we apologize for any inconvenience.”
With 2.38 billion monthly active users, you might think Facebook would explain exactly what happened. You’d be wrong. Instagram and WhatsApp also reported they were back up with similar uninformative answers.
