‘I Have Lost Millions’ – Nigerians Cry Out As Whatsapp, Facebook And Instagram Shut Down Globally
Nigerians have 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.
The three apps are all owned by Facebook and run on shared infrastructure, which was foundered by Mark Zuckerberg.
According to reports all completely stopped working shortly before 5pm.
Visitors to the Facebook website (including NaijaNews correspondents) simply saw an error page or a message that their browser could not connect.
However, unhappy social media users who run small businesses on these platforms have taken to other forums and social platforms such as Twitter to vent their frustrations.
Here are some of the reactions gathered by Naija News.
Abeos wrote; “First thought it was my network till I opened other websites.’
Thylord wrote; “I have lost millions of naira since this outage.”
busterr wrote; ‘It’s painful but the uselessness of airtel network is more painful. Airtel is a useless network. More useless than glo. God punish this stupid network.’
emmawiz wrote; ‘Not finding it funny, I taught my sub finished.’
rolams wrote; “It’s been a while I used facebook. WhatsApp is the only issue cos I can’t chat with my biz partners.”
“We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products, we’re working on it and we’ll get it fixed as soon as we can.”” Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said on Twitter.
