Mark Zuckerberg’s apology has been rejected after a seven-hour outage to Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram meant users “lost business”.
Zuckerberg’s own fortune fell by $7 billion as a result of a technical crash that left users pretty much locked out for Monday.
“Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger are now back online,” Zuckerberg said in a post.
“Sorry for today’s disruption — I know how much you trust our services to stay connected to the people you care about.”
But users didn’t have the bar and apologized.
Monica Izumi said that Facebook’s services are “very important to me, my work and my clients”.
One person said he “missed a lot of business today” because of the outage.
Osai Ovi posted: “Some of us lost some amount as a result of the outage yesterday.”
Others accused Zuckerberg of apologizing in a way that shows the world needs him.
Alleging arrogance on social media, a user wrote, ‘Please don’t make yourself more important than you.
“Get off your high horse.”
He shrugged his shoulders and posted a picture of a man looking insincere: “‘I know how much you trust our services…”
Others enjoy the peace and quiet of being offline.
One woman was “thinking of closing my account” after the outage, while another said life “is much easier without these services”.
“Blackouts made me realize how much they [social media platforms] When we have a world in front of our own eyes, it becomes obsessive,” said another.
Social media platforms were up and running as of Monday afternoon.
A Facebook blog post said the blackout was caused by a “configuration change on the Backbone routers that coordinated network traffic between our data centers” that “stopped our services”.
A wild conspiracy theory is suggesting that Facebook “sparked its own massive outage to divert attention from the company’s claims of whistleblowers”.
The conspiracy theory swirled just a day after Facebook’s whistleblower, Francis Haugen, went public on Sunday and accused the social media platform of consistently prioritizing profit rather than struggling Hate speech and misinformation.
As skeptics compared Haugen to the proliferation of shutdowns, the Facebook chief’s technology officer said his “sincere apologies“To all who were affected by the outage.
Damage control ahead of “Francis Hauge whistleblower testimony Before Congress tomorrow?” wrote a Twitter user.
Another said: “Interesting that Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are down day by day facebook whistleblower, Frances Haugen, testifies before Congress…”
Meanwhile, others suspected that Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram had been hacked.
a person shared a fake ad On putting the domain up for sale for a relatively low $8 billion with the words “Inquire now and Facebook can be yours”.
Doug Madori, director of internet analysis for Kentik Inc., a network monitoring and intelligence company, said: “It’s epic. The last major Internet outage, which knocked many of the world’s top websites offline in June, lasted less than an hour. .
“In that case the stricken content-delivery company, increasingly, blamed it on a software bug triggered by a customer who changed a setting.”
