Signal hoots at WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook’s global outage

On Monday night, users in many parts of the world complained that WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook were inaccessible. Beginning about 9 p.m. IST, Twitter users claimed that the three Facebook-owned platforms were unavailable. Around 400 million individuals in India use one or more of these platforms.

“We're aware that some users are having difficulties accessing our applications and products,” Facebook communications chief Andy Stone wrote on Twitter at 9:37 p.m. India time. We're working hard to restore normalcy as soon as possible, and we regret for any inconvenience.”

Meanwhile, the outage was mocked by Signal. “Signups are significantly higher on Signal(welcome everyone! ),” the firm stated in a tweet. We understand what it's like to be in the middle of an outage, and we wish the engineers working on restoring service on other platforms the best of luck.”

When WhatsApp goes down, users resort to Telegram and Signal, which are also instant messaging applications. India has the highest user base for Facebook and its platform, with over 410 million members. WhatsApp has 530 million users, while Instagram has 210 million, according to official figures.
