Reason for Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp outage

Meanwhile, the cause of the Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp outages has finally been uncovered. 

Meanwhile, since Tuesday, October 5, at midnight, apologies have been pouring in from Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, but why hasn't been included in the 'sorry' notes? - What was the purpose of the nearly 8-hour downtime? 

The three social media giants have avoided providing explanations for why users are unable to access their platforms, instead claiming that the system is experiencing "issues."

This isn't the first time the three Mark Zuckerberg-owned applications have gone down in flames; the same thing happened on March 19, 2021. 'Technical issue,' says the reason.
