‘Did they switch it off and on again?’
‘I survived the great Facebook outage of 2021’
And my favourite…
‘Were you affected by having no Instagram for six hours? You could be due compensation’
Yes Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and humankind went down for six hours on Monday night. Some people are still trying to recover.
£36 billion was wiped off the value of the company – eek.
2 billion people were affected.
And it looks like it was down to human error.
Imagine if you were the FB employee responsible!
The serious side was it affected banking in Africa, family communications everywhere and millions of businesses who use the platforms.
And some people had to talk to their partners!
Their conversation was most likely, ‘It’s still off’. ‘I know’.
We have faith that things should ‘just work’ and when they don’t we miss the convenience.
Like when there’s a power cut or your water supply is disrupted.
Or when somebody leaves.
Give thanks for what you take for granted (even Insta & Facebook).
Tell someone you appreciate them.
What do you think we have faith will work… until it doesn’t? Please leave your comments below
