Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp went down for 6+ hours

It's been a rough day for Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp users. The social media giant has had its services down for six hours now, with no sign of when they will return. All four platforms are experiencing some sort of difficulties that have users unable to access them on their phones or desktop computers. It's unclear what is causing the problem but it seems fairly widespread across all four platforms as well as different parts of the world.   This isn't the first time Facebook has experienced outages--the company reported an outage in March 2018 which lasted about 2 hours, and another outage in October 2017 which lasted less than an hour. So far there doesn't seem to be any indication this one will stop anytime soon either, so if you

What caused the outage and how did it affect people's lives

The internet outage on October 21, 2016 was a worldwide event that caused chaos in people's lives.

1) FaceTime or Skype your loved ones. 

2) Send postcards. 

3) Text messages - not only can you text people who don't live nearby, but it also keeps the lines of communication open with those who do live close by. 

4) Call someone on the phone instead of texting them (remember that old-fashioned technology?) You'll get more information out of the conversation than you would out of a string of texts!

The pros of social media

Social media is a powerful marketing tool. It allows you to connect with your customers on a more personal level, and in turn grow your brand's following. In this blog post I'll be going over the pros of social media marketing.

Why you should be careful about what you post on the internet

"It's no secret that the internet is a global marketplace. It connects people from all over the world, giving them access to information they could have never imagined before. However, there are many things you should be careful about when it comes to what you post on this now-global platform." 

"The last thing you want to do is put yourself in a position where your personal or professional reputation can be tarnished because of something silly or stupid posted online." 

"Whether it's through social media, blogging sites like WordPress, or even just emailing back and forth with friends- everyone has an opportunity for their words to spread quickly across the globe if given the chance."
