on October 4th there was a worldwide disturbance of the various platforms that belong to the Facebook Group. The social media and messenger services Facebook, Instagram, Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp were not available for six hours.

like Facebook specifies in an official statement, the disruption should not have acted by no malicious strange effect. Rather, there was a total communication failure between the data centers. The US-American engineering teams should have found that the reason for this have been configuration changes to the backbone routers responsible for coordinating network traffic between data centers. There are also no signs that user data were at risk due to this downtime. Meanwhile, the Facebook services are fully available again and the group apologizes to all people and companies around the world who rely on them for the inconvenience caused by the failure of the platforms.

Mass to Telegram

benefited from the Facebook failure, above all, the direct competitors of the individual services. WhatsApp Competitor Telegram could probably record 70 million new users in the period, as chip reports. In a telegram post, this also confirmed the CEO of the company, Pavel Durov: ".. We have greeted more than 79 million refugees from other platforms on a day." The entrepreneur is proud of how the team dealt with the sudden and enormous growth in users and that the platform worked without problems.

Also, the number of sent SMS should be broken down in the period of the disturbance. As the time reports, the number of SMS sent to O2 should be tripled on Monday evening alone compared to the eve.

But other Facebook competitors probably achieved more people on Monday evening. Twitter , for example, welcomed in a tweet on the official profile "literally all".
