International social media companies, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, and Instagram, are now back online.
Naija News reports that the widely patronized messaging and media sharing apps founded by Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, left its users in a nerve-wracking situation on Monday after services provided by the apps could not be accessed.
WhatsApp which is the third of the three apps owned by the same company also became functional a few minutes after the others. Naija News can authoritatively confirm that the social apps are fully active as at the time this report is given.
Meanwhile, just a few hours after the shutting down of the social media platforms, reports emerged that Silicon Valley Techpreneur Mark Zuckerberg’s personal wealth has fallen by nearly $7 billion.
The development knocked the American media magnate down a notch on the list of the world’s richest people. Naija News understands that over three billion persons are using the platforms and the unannounced seize of service left the online users frustrated on Monday evening.
Meanwhile, Nigerians had earlier taken to other social media platforms to express their displeasure after major social media services including, Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp experienced a blackout on Monday evening.
Naija News reports that many users across the world are currently finding it difficult to gain access to WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook.
The three apps are all owned by Facebook and run on shared infrastructure, which was foundered by Mark Zuckerberg.
