“Out of order” “Service not available” “No connection”, “… this app is not available” etc.

So, or something like that, you could watch yesterday evening WORLDWIDE. Of course “only” when it comes to the social media giants Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp goes.

These were totally canceled yesterday evening or were disturbed and not reachable or dialable.

What irritated users and social media fetishists at the beginning and also annoyed them after a few hours – and hand on heart – who does not use the social media networks regularly – turned out to be so-called according to various information from the media and also from Facebook itself “Super Gau”.

Because FACEBOOK and its subsidiaries INSTAGRAM and WHATSAPP together have almost 6.2 billion users, this number has to be imagined. With a world population of 7.89 billion people (as of August 2021, source: German Foundation for World Population).

The so-called XXXL disorder did not only affect Austria, Germany and Central Europe, no, initial information according to the entire globe.

The economic damage of “only” 7 hours of total network failure amounted to the 37-year-old American and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerbergto $ 7 billion.
Zuckerberg’s fortune is now “only” estimated at 120 billion dollars – but the 7 billion should make up relatively little in these dimensions.

The disorder

Facebook chief technician Mike Schroepfer apologized to the users late in the evening and communicated via TWITTER (bizarre on the side should be mentioned here, because the powerful Facebook group had to use a “different” network to be able to carry the information to the users) that it was very large Network problems and teams are currently working hard to resolve the global disruption.

It was also pointed out that the configurations of importantRouterswhich are responsible for the data traffic between the individual data centers of Facebook. Serious errors occurred and the data traffic was suddenly interrupted, with the result that all services in the entire company collapsed.

Twitter was in a “high” for a short time and was pleased that so many users suddenly used the short message service. They wrote something like, “Twitter says hello to everyone in the world out there”.

As you can see, “data breaches” and “network failures” are sometimes gigantic and 7 hours can reach dimensions that some cannot imagine.

In this sense: happy “WhatsApp-en” again.
