WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram are closed on this Monday (4)

Users started complaining early this Monday afternoon (4) that WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook are down. While the social networks were not updating the feed, the messenger was not receiving or sending any messages.

The decline was monitored by downdetector, which began reporting a significant increase in complaints around 12:30 pm (Brasilia time). The site’s fault map also shows that problems were notified in several capitals of the country, such as So Paulo, Recife, Salvador and Curitiba.

With Mark Zuckerberg’s three platforms down, people took the opportunity to complain about the situation on Twitter. In a good-natured manner, users asked to get the network back up and running as soon as possible. Check out the best publications on the topic below:

The collapse of the two main social networks and the main messaging application in the world did not happen only in Brazil. On Twitter, it was possible to find posts in English and Spanish, for example, of people saying that the services were not working. The topic also made news around the world.
