Instagram and Whatsapp Down Again

Instagram and Whatsapp Down Again

Instagram and Whatsapp Down Again what it means for your Business

Even if you live on Mars you would have noticed that Instagram and WhatsApp were down for hours today (04-07-2019).

Thing is, it has almost become a regular occurrence and people are getting used to it.

As a business owner, what does this mean to you?

You may not have admitted that the constant failings of the facebook group of apps are affecting your business. I am here to tell you that it is. Also, I will like to let you know that you can do your business beyond failings of WhatsApp and Instagram.

How I knew the apps were down was terrible. I was in between a conversation with a client and was about to get a payment of $200 and I could not send voice notes. Neither could I send nor receive images. Thankfully, we could also communicate on other mediums chief of which is via our official email accounts. It saved me valuable time and money most importantly.

Instagram and Whatsapp Down: Way Out

And this is because WhatsApp is down? you must know by now that you need a platform that will not have the frequent failings as we see it today on these popular social media.

As seen on the Independent

Last time all three of Facebook’s major services broke, the outage lasted for many hours. It later blamed that problem on a server issue that had a knock-on effect on Instagram and WhatsApp, as well as Facebook, since the three use shared infrastructure.

“As a result of a server configuration change, many people had trouble accessing our apps and services,”. Facebook posted on Twitter after that previous outage was fixed. “We’ve now resolved the issues and our systems are recovering. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate everyone’s patience.”

When those problems happened in March, they were said to be perhaps the biggest outage in the history of the internet. It hit millions of people.

“By duration, this is by far the largest outage we have seen since the launch of Downdetector in 2012,” Tom Sanders, co-founder of Downdetector, told Techcrunch in the wake of that outage. “Our systems processed about 7.5 million problem reports from end users over the course of this incident. Never before have we such a large scale outage.”

    This is informative and helpful. The irony is that I wasn’t aware of the outage while it lasted since I was mostly offline for the better part of the day. But like you rightly pointed out, the trend has serious ramifications for folks whose business thrive on the social media. And as a forward-thinking ITPreneur, you’ve offered a solution/service that can take care of the problem. I’ll be tapping into that solution.

    I have gone through the e-commerce price list as well as the web design pricing. I must say that I am eager to do what I can to ensure that I’m never out of reach, not only because I have seen the need but because I know I don’t have to break the bank for it..
