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.

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.
