Social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Whatsapp went through a downtime. Due to some issues, the platforms were down for hours. Some people even say they were down for a day.
The downtime started yesterday, the 4th of October, 2021, and the downtime felt like it was the end of the world for millions and billions of people.
During the downtime, Facebook’s spokesperson, Andy Stone, said Facebook agents were aware of the downtime on both the apps and the websites and they would try anything in their power to restore them as soon as possible and apologize for the inconvenience.
The downtime happened hours after a former Facebook whistleblower, Frances Haugen, accused Facebook of prioritising growth over safety.
She worked at Facebook as a product manager on the civic integrity team for Facebook. She was responsible for leaking documents from Facebook, saying that she leaked them because she wanted to fix the social media platform.
Frances Haugen said that the documents she leaked proves that Facebook has prioritised growth over safety many times, and explained that Facebook is lying to its users about its efforts to disapprove hate speech, violence, and misinformation, because that is the only thing that would profit the company.
Reacting to Frances’s revelation, Facebook said that what she said is misleading and does not talk about positive research that the company is doing.
The reason for the downtime is not clear, the reason was not revealed officially by Facebook but many Nigerians suspect that it was a nationwide network problem as Nigerian networks, especially MTN were also down, Nigerians could not call, browse or message using the network.
