Whatsapp down (again): Unable to send messages for an hour

Several users report the classic "scroll wheel" that turns when the application attempts to connect to the server unsuccessfully. It is tilting especially in Europe



Whatsapp is out of service. Again. The most used messaging app in the world does not allow you to send text, video, and photo messages. Several users report the classic "scroll wheel" that turns when the application attempts to connect to the server unsuccessfully. The #whatsappdown hashtag is one of the most popular on Twitter. According to the DownDetector site, blackout was mainly concentrated in Europe in Southeast Asia. After about an hour, the service started working again.

Four cases of blackout in one year
This is not the first time the messaging app lets its users in the dark, who have now exceeded one billion everywhere. The last episode, in order of time, dates back to August 31 when WhatsApp stopped receiving and sending messages. Still problems, always on the same platform, on May 3rd : Italy went offline at 22.30 and only two in the night could start communicating again. Facebook - who bought the app in 2014 for 14 billion - then "apologized for the discomfort". And again, on May 17th , the connection went on for about an hour.

No explanation


The company never gives any explanation of what happens. Because its platforms suddenly leave offline users for a few hours. Not just WhatsApp. Facebook has also recently had problems.On October 11thboth the social network founded by Mark Zuckerberg and Instagram - which he acquired in 2012 - have been unreachable to thousands of users in Europe and the United States. Even in this case there was some clarification. Facebook limited to saying: "We are aware that there are access problems, we are working to bring the situation back to normal as soon as possible." And when the most used platforms in the world leave users on foot, the social crisis comes to the fore again: Twitter. The only means of communication (and grievance) that remains, is filled with ads, questions, and doubts all joined by the various hashtag #whatsappdown, #facebookdown, or #instagramdown.
