The afternoon of Monday (4) is marked, for many, by instability in social platforms owned by the Facebook group. This social network, as well as Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger, approves of working in various parts of the globe, including Portugal.
Through the Downdetector platform we can verify the extent of complaints regarding the inaccessibility of the verified services. A symptom that peaked around 4:45 pm in mainland Portugal.
Flaws on Facebook are mostly felt on the hweb
It was from 4:15 pm that he began to feel the main problems in accessing Facebook platforms. Faced with the impossibility of accessing the services in question, users use a Downdetector and other platforms to express their discontent.
Note that most issues have been reported for the web version of Facebook, as the issue is felt lesser expression on mobile platforms. They still exist, so it’s not surprising if your app doesn’t work properly.
As for Instagram, WhatsApp or Messenger, most complaints originate from their mobile versions. These complaints of failures in accessing the respective servers and sending messages to their contacts.
WhatsApp is the platform that registers the most complaints on the Downdetector platform, with complaints reaching a peak of 5617 at the time of writing this article. Then there’s Facebook with a peak of 4145 complaints.
Messenger is the platform that registers the lowest volume of complaints, although they exist and are justified. Hundreds of users reported the impossibility of accessing the service, proving that it is also affected by technical failures.
Faced with what has happened, users turn to their main rival, Twitter, to deal with the problems. Furthermore, no one did not miss the opportunity to satirize the situation.
For now, we still don’t know what motivated this blackout on today’s main social platforms. For the technical teams of the company founded by Mark Zuckerberg, it is urgent to find a solution to solve this setback.
It is important to remember that this is the second time, in about a month, that Facebook platforms have failed access to services. A scenario that perhaps deserves to be considered by those responsible for it.
