Communications Seized with the server outage in Whatsapp, FB and Instagram
Once again the server issues hit Whatsapp, Facebook, and Instagram users at 8:40 p.m. IST, according to reports. The Facebook-owned trio of social media platforms went down, prompting widespread coverage on the microblogging site Twitter. All the three platforms, Whatsapp, Facebook and Instagram have issued an official statement on Twitter, but Twitter, which is supposed to be the savior in remaining connected to the globe when these three go down, is being inundated with memes and fury about social media services down.
