2.3 billion users across the world were affected by Facebook outrage and its properties including Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger for more than a day, it was the site’s largest-ever outage. And after this Apple outrage was there as a surprise again. The social networking concluded all the problem as “server configuration change. Some are discussing the cyber attack, but yet nothing is confirmed.

People are believing that the series of outrages of all the services are connected. But it is simply too early to conclude something. Companies are not providing enough details to fully understand the nature of these outrages which are happened.

It was the third major tech outage of iCloud in as many days. Apple has not yet given any comment on the matter. It will be fair o say that it was not a good enough week for internet. Apple is still not commenting on the problem when reached by different sites. Hopefully, some of you tried to give an Off and On try to the social sites. But all in vain. Right?
