Why Facebook Instagram WhatsApp Oculus Are Down

Published

Why is facebook and instagram and whatsapp down today ? And actually oculus vr is down as well.

 

Pretty much all the major services that facebook owns are down today so if you guys actually seen this so morning on cnbc and tagone davis who is one of the higher ups at facebook was defending the recent findings.

 

That i think came out one of the wall street journal i think it was if i’m not mistaken wall street journal a week ago put out a report that basically third-party companies have had the data for years now that facebook knew internally that their algorithms and the way instagram is set up as an app and facebook is set up as an app literally increases the likelihood of teens committing suicide.

 

That facebook had internal data that did tell them that basically posts that are more engaged with based on fear and kind of negative feelings or negative you know news and things like that always went to the top of the feed so you know when it came to the 2016 elections and pinning you know certain groups of people against other groups of people.

 

Apparently facebook and instagram knew this internally that was going on that was their algorithm set up that almost pretty much on purpose driving this sort of psychological behavior on this platform so she went on cnbc to sort of defend that look you know there’s some proof of that there’s this and that and they’re actually working with the government to try to pass regulation for social media companies right now.

 

So this is my sort of hypothesis or there’s something that was going on because mark zuckerberg has been getting hammered by the congress for a little over a year now if not longer sort of you know congress asked him to explain what happened in 2016 elections.

 

The whole britannica company in england that sort of misused facebook ad data and pixels and things like that to again you know pin certain populations against each other and during the elections and things like that so facebook has been getting hammered by the government to basically tell them that you have to regulate more you have to really figure out how to regulate the content that’s put on your website on the app that you have to regulate what can be advertised and what can’t so what facebook is basically saying and what’s going on is that look they’re being sort of single-handedly picked on by the government and facebook is saying you know what we’re not against regulation but don’t regulate just us don’t make us lose money as a platform but make regulations across the board, so if we’re going to be affected twitter’s going to be affected youtube’s going to be affected google’s going to be affected snapchat every major company social media wise that has an advertising platform is going to be hit by the same regulations so put it this way big changes are coming but because of this announcement and the stock just starting to plummet.

 

Now we can’t access facebook a lot of reports are saying it’s a dns issue i don’t want to get into the depth and weeds of what that means from the software development perspective and what dns really is but put it this way the panic that’s going on with the stock plummeting as of right now for facebook is what’s causing sort of the outage maybe it was purposely sort of taken offline by the company itself to make certain changes and corrections right now and then require them to take all their service down because again every major facebook platform that is owned by facebook which includes whatsapp and instagram to name a few of the major ones are also all down the last thing i could see at least on my instagram feed that the last post i could see on my feed was two hours ago so that was literally about an hour and a half after mrs davis came out on tv this morning sort of defending Facebook.

 

The stock has been on the free fall since and has dropped nearly five percent in just the last couple hours which is definitely a big drop you know relatively speaking in the stocks life span especially for facebook so that’s what’s going on .

 

Here’s what to expect changes are coming right it’s been an issue for facebook to be sort of self-regulating itself and what other companies like cnn fox and cnbc these major media conglomerates they are looked at by the government as a media company so they’re held to a different standard there’s different rules and regulations for creating ads if you think about it let’s say you’re a music artist or let’s say you’re selling whatever you can’t just make any type of commercial and put it out on cnn or cartoon network or the disney channel and things like that you know there has to be a disclosure of who’s paying for this ad there has to be some sort of i’m not saying they do fact check on the cable news let’s get real a lot of there’s a lot of being sold on cable news all the time but what i’m saying is the standards are way different so it is going to impact how ads are sort of launched it is going to impact what you be able to say or not say online unfortunately it is going to impact how you’re going to be able to monetize your content depending on what industry or sector you’re in so all that’s coming we don’t know to what level but you know it’s uh we’ve seen it all coming there’s been a lot of bs that’s been going on social media it is affecting people it’s affecting businesses it’s affecting our population all across the board so that’s all i’m saying is get ready the outage is clearly still there i’m writing this as of 1:30 p.m eastern time maybe here for a few more hours i’m sure they’re going to get back up about today but maybe it won’t but that’s the news for now.
