CEO of WhatsApp breaks silence about the social media outageReesha Mirza
WhatsApp, the most popular smartphone messaging software, was taken offline for several hours before being restored by CEO Keith Cart, who stated that WhatsApp was “back up and running.”
At roughly 8:30 p.m., all Facebook-owned social media networks, including WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook itself, went offline worldwide. After a seven-hour blackout, the platform was restored about 4 a.m.
“We’re entirely back up and running now, we know that people were unable to use WhatsApp to connect with their friends, family, businesses, community groups, and more today — a humbling reminder of how much people and organisations rely on our app every day.” Keith Cart tweeted.
