Facebook WhatsApp and Instagram Second Global Outage in A Week


Facebook Second Global Outage: The shutdown of services like Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram has become fashionable. Let us tell you that it has not been a week when the service of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp was disrupted for 6 hours across the world. Due to this, the users had to face a lot of trouble. But now, once again, Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram were closed for two hours.

This incident happened last Friday. Let us tell you that the downing of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp happened at around 2 am on Saturday at 21.30 GMT, i.e. Indian time, which has been fixed till 6 pm. In such a situation, the more negligible effect of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp being down has been seen in countries like India.


Facebook clarified

Like last time, Facebook has once again apologized to the users due to the service being down and said that the problem had been fixed from their side. In such a situation, users can use Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram again as before.

According to the DownDetector report, late Friday, users face problems using Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram.

What was the reason

According to experts, the reason behind the downing of Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram are Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). BGP Internet is a network of many networks. BGP is a mechanism that works to connect these networks. But if BGP doesn’t work, the Internet router won’t know what to do.


In this case, the internet will stop working. Routers are large enough to deliver network packets to the last source along with updating other routers. If, in any case, the network was not told by Facebook what to do, then in this situation, the Facebook service may be interrupted.
