What happened to Facebook, Whatsapp and Instagram last night and now

I didn’t wish for the owner of Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram to lose about 6 billion dollars and 5% dropped from their stock just for the six hours that the services were down. But, it was a wish come through for me last night. For I have always been wishing to experience what the world will be like without social media in this present age where social media is everything. Like, everything. Even though some platforms like Telegram, tik tok, Twitter etc. were still available but we all know that when we call or talk about social media Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram takes the lead.

Last night, most of my friends resulted to face to face conversation. Phones were willing kept away without me screaming and getting really angry at them. It was quite funny but thanks to whatever happened to the platforms.
But what really happened to Facebook. WhatsApp. Instagram?
It was really a shock to everyone. Like no one really expected what happened. It wasn’t just a particular place, it was worldwide. I wondered what other countries that had the highest rate of addiction did last night.
It was said that these platforms were hacked and the domain name was on sale last night and the hackers were demanding for a huge ransom. Interesting!!


If truly it was hackers, well menh! The hackers are really smart to have hacked such highly secured platforms. (I’m not in support of their actions).
But with the owner not saying the reason why their services was shutdown for six hours, we don’t know the real reason and we will regard the news about hacking the platforms as misinformation or fake news just to get attention or traffic.

I learnt something last night as well and that is “never depend or rely on something that isn’t yours”. To go spiritual it will be “Never rely on anything that isn’t God”.

The owner Mark Zuckerberg has finally commented

“Facebook, Instagram. Whatsapp and Messenger are coming back online now. Sorry for the disruption today – I know how much you rely on our services to stay connected with the people you care about”, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said
The platforms are gradually coming online and we are gradually going back to our normal lives again. My friends have picked up their phones to gist about what happened last night and they probably won’t talk to me again till maybe when something like last night happens again.
For me I learnt something last night, I don’t know if you did learnt anything as well or you just experienced the shutdown and talked with the others about it. Everything that happens to you or around you should be a medium for you to learn.
If you don’t mind, I would love to hear your own experience last night.
How did you manage without social media last night or without Facebook. WhatsApp and Instagram?
Leave me a comment below and I will sure reply you.

  1. I was surprised at first, until I discovered other people facing the same issues, thank God we’re back on.👏👏👏👏

  2. Losing $6b in 6 hours, imagine how much these people make within a seconds daily. Life without social media would have been bored.

    • To some people who aren’t social media freak they won’t agree to “life without social media will be bored”.
      But I think majority will agree to it.
      Not just him but other business people who make use of the platform lost a lot of money
