  • Apparently having DNS problems -- the sites are TOTALLY DOWN at the moment.

    It's Facebook and all the properties they own, including Instagram and Whatsapp.

  • Oh no, it's the cyber pandemic!

    (Who ever heard of a cyber pandemic before 2020?)

  • This is good. Even with tradCath Facebook groups including one where Fr Abraham posts vids of the Masses Bp Williamson offers, are nothing short of a doxing machine. There were people caught up in the 6 Jan hoax facing charges or employment penalties based on what they wrote in Facebook groups. Whatsapp is a good communication tool, but given its owner, it has to be suspected.

  • For anything serious people need to understand encrypted message clients, it's unreal people think of themselves as "dissidents" while doing said "dissident" activities on clearweb platforms. Signal is terrible IMO, it requires a phone number (lol) which gives a real paper trail and the owner and platform are compromised. Whatsapp seems compromised too through ownership. The only good stuff is Matrix based.

    The whole "sharing" what people do online thing is just a way to enable dragnet security, streaming Mass should ALWAYS cut when people go up to the rail for starters. I don't think people should even be sharing baby pictures or having FB or phones period. Most "normies" think this is schizo but it really isn't. We're living in a parallel society (vaxed vs unvaxed) and we need to start acting like it.

  • They seem to be overdoing the censoring.

  • This doesn't seem to be a short hiccup, or even a "short" 1 hour outage. It's been going on for 3.25 hours and counting.

    And despite all the articles saying "many users", "some places", "some users" -- can ANYONE get to FB, Instagram, or Whatsapp?

    It looks to me like those sites are DOWN. Period. (For now I mean -- not suggesting it's permanent). But I am suggesting the outages are QUITE universal.

  • This is what I'm talking about:


    Quote
    "We're aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products," Facebook said on Twitter. "We're working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience."


    Yes, "some people" -- meaning 100% of those who try to access the site, from any place worldwide.

    Prove me wrong.

  • Last I heard, they were blaming it on one guy making a change to their gateway.  There's no way in such a big IT organization that that could happen.  They have processes and change controls, and everything must be tested first in a production-like environment, etc.  So I'm not buying the official story they're spinning.

  • World would be a much better place if all those services never came back from the dead.

  • They are clearly trying to downplay and lie about this universal outage.
