Reason Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp crashed finally revealed

Meanwhile, apologies have been pouring in since Tuesday, October 5, midnight from Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, but what has been missing in the 'sorry' notes is why? - why the downtime that took almost 8-hours to fix?

The three social media companies have avoided giving reasons for users inability to connect to their platforms, offering the usual claim of system encountering "issue".

This is not the first time the three Mark Zuckerberg-owned apps would experience an outage, as they had suffered the same fate on March 19, 2021. The reason? - 'technical issue'.
