On 4 October, Instagram, Facebook, Messenger, and WhatsApp experienced a major outage that affected users all over the globe. It appears to have been so serious, that Instagram is now testing in-app notifications to let you know when something is wrong.
Facebook and Instagram have been in the center of attention for a while now, and one of the reasons is “Instagram for kids.” After the company’s private information leaked (and eventually got published), the controversial app has been suspended, at least for a while. Instagram is now introducing some new features that will not prompt teens to use the app, but rather to take a break from it.
Actress Lisa Rinna has found herself embroiled in a lawsuit with the representatives of a paparazzi photographer after using the images on her Instagram feed without the photographer’s permission. Rinna has said that she always saw the relationship with the paparazzi as “symbiotic” and never restricted access to them to take photographs of her and her family, the Days of Our Lives actress told the LA Times.
She continues “It was part of the game if you’re going to be in this business. I’ve been nice, I’ve never fought with them, I’ve never run from them. My kids grew up with them jumping out of the bushes in Malibu. We’ve had a very good relationship with the press and the paparazzi. That’s why this is so shocking to me.”
You’re in an exotic location where time seems to stand still. A farmer dressed in an outfit fit for the 19th Century walks slowly past, leading his buffalo to the field through the morning mist. Fishermen in straw hats mend their nets, effortlessly standing in the best light possible. If it all sounds too good to be true, it is, at least in Xiapu County in rural China where “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players”.
As I believe all of you have noticed, Facebook was down for quite a lot of time yesterday. The outage was global, and Facebook took Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp down with it. The company acknowledged the issue, but didn’t give us the reason behind it. Now, after everything’s back to normal, Facebook has finally revealed what caused one of the worst outages in its history.
Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp have been hit by a global outage. The DIYP team noticed the issue earlier today, and Facebook has confirmed that it’s gone down for users across the globe.
