Facebook and Instagram Downtime: Elon Musk Mocks Zuckerberg


 Meta's top platforms, Facebook and Instagram, have been down for the past hours leaving millions of users frustrated and confused. Most users said they were online when they were suddenly logged out of the platforms and denied access.

The way Facebook went down made millions of users think that their accounts had been hacked or compromised by malicious apps. The usual account recovery process including the two-factor authentication was also ineffective during the social media downtime.

The operational failure by Meta had left so many questioning what was going on in the company. Meanwhile, Tesla's CEO, Elon Musk, had used the most to make jest of Meta's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. Musk who is also the owner of X formerly known as Twitter, a rival social media company, shared a post that indirectly mocked the incompetence of Facebook and Instagram owners.

In the post made on X, Musk said,

"If you’re reading this post, it’s because our servers are working."

X users didn't have to waste time to understand what Musk was trying to say. In response, a user replied,

this is truly the only place we can depend on! Good on you for fighting so hard for free speech! I’m good if FB and IG stay down!

Meta is yet to state the cause of the issues on the platform but it is believed to be a technical issue.

This is not the first time Meta's platform like Facebook has gone down. Last year, WhatsApp went down for hours, but it seems like this one happened when people were less prepared. It is there good to always be on alert while using social media platforms. Back up your account and ensure you have an alternative social media platform j case the one you rely on goes down.
