Facebook and Instagram are back, and Twitter has something to say about it


Facebook is back in business, for better or worse.


Facebook has risen once more to disseminate chain posts, conspiracy theories, and snarky comments in group chats. After a six-hour outage, the platform is now fully operational and ready to suck our feeble minds back into the tar pit that is the internet.


On Monday, the social media website experienced a massive outage, with users all over the world reporting that it had gone down unexpectedly. And it wasn't the only service that went out of operation. Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and even the company's internal communications system Workplace were all rendered inoperable, leaving millions of people without access to their primary social media apps at an inconvenient time.


It was chaos, with many people taking to Twitter to make light of the situation and joke about society's impending collapse. Despite the fact that Facebook is well-known for facilitating the spread of misinformation and stoking social divisions — practices that former employee and whistleblower Frances Haugen called out on Sunday — millions of people rely on its services for basic and everyday communication.


Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your point of view), Facebook is now fully operational again, which should alleviate any concerns Mark Zuckerberg may have about the company's stock price falling further in value. The results of Mashable's tests revealed that Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp are all struggling to get back on their feet. The results have been mixed, with some users reporting that WhatsApp is still having difficulties, but it's only a matter of time before they all return.


Users on Twitter are alternately ecstatic and lamenting about Facebook's reintroduction into the public domain. Both reactions appear to be reasonable.
