FacebookWhistleblower & The Social Media Shutdown

Many social media users worldwide realized their virtual lives through Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp had come to a complete stop. Some of those people searched, and others scrambled to recover information on yet another social media crash. Of course, Twitter was the first stop, with retweeted memes glorifying Twitter’s staple when other apps are no longer accessible. But these social media takedowns may be a lot deeper than the ones before. Facebook website is not coming up… at all.

After doing my research and getting an alert on Clubhouse to chime into a room… this is the reason why Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp are down.

What to ponder?

How will I remain connected to communities or in business if this is just a precursor to what’s to come?
