Last week when Facebook and Instagram were unavailable for several hours many people lost their ever-loving social media minds! They were unable to connect virtually with their family, friends and followers via these FREE Social Media Platforms.
According to USA Today the outages that occurred last Wednesday afternoon were in areas within the U.S., Europe, South America, and Asia. Though many people could still access the platforms, key features, such as messaging and new content posts weren’t loading properly with error messages.
Facebook, which owns Instagram, responded to the outages via Twitter stating that the company was working to fix the issue but it did not give any indication as to when the features would be restored.
#FacebookDown was the trending hashtag as many took to Twitter to spread conspiracy theories about Russian hackers, but finally Facebook stated, that the “Outage was due to ‘Server Configuration Change'”
However, if you had a blog with an active email list of subscribers there was no need to panic. True, we were unable to share the links to our blog posts via Facebook and Instagram for several hours, but that did not affect our ability to share our blog posts with our readers.
The Facebook and Instagram outage was yet just further confirmation of what I have been telling my clients, “do not build your brand or business solely on FREE social media platforms, instead use them to drive traffic to your website, blog or brick and mortar store”.
