Social media platforms Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp suffered a massive 6-hour outage on Monday October 4, 2021.
Downdetector.com received thousands of reports of the Facebook outage to a total high of over 50,000 reports.
After nearly 6 hours, services and activities on the Facebook Inc. social media platforms began showing signs of restoration.

Frances Haugen: There were conflicts of interest between what was good for the public and what was good for Facebook.
Another issue raised by Haugen is the potential harm on self-image and mental health caused by Instagram on teenage girls.
