‘Sorry For The Disruption’ – Mark Zuckerberg Apologizes For The Facebook, WhatsApp & Instagram Shutdown
Renowned billionaire and owner CEO of popular social media platforms Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, Mark Zuckerberg has offered an unqualified apology to all social media users on these platforms.
His apology comes after these platforms were off for about 12 hours on Monday, September 4 due to a system outbreak.
Once the platforms showed signs of working, the entrepreneur took to his verified social media handle on Facebook and made a post assuring social media users that plans are in place to get these platforms running.
He also took the chance to speak about the importance of these platforms to social media users. The post he made reads;
“Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger are coming back online now. Sorry for the disruption today — I know how much you rely on our services to stay connected with the people you care about.”
These three platforms have quite a significant number of users and the shutdown meant that several personal and business conversations were put on hold. In addition to these conversations, advertisements on these platforms could not also run due to the shutdown. Per what we have gathered, these platforms lost over $6 billion within the period that it went off.
