It’s Happening. Total Blackout. Ramona Leone is still online, we’ll never leave you.
From ABC News
Both the mobile and web browser editions of the apps were not working as of 11:42 a.m. ET, the site reported.
“We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience,” a Facebook company spokesperson told ABC News.
The company said it’s still experiencing “networking issues” in a statement Monday afternoon. No timeline for a fix has been released.
“Sincere apologies to everyone impacted by outages of Facebook-powered services right now,” the company said in a statement Monday afternoon. “We are experiencing networking issues and teams are working as fast as possible to debug and restore as fast as possible”
All Facebook related apps are down. Looks pretty bad. We all know that they’ll be back up soon. This is the biggest tool used by the satanic elite to spread misinformation and brain wash the masses. Everyone knows even if it’s subconsciously that people now have a need for these platforms. Many don’t know what to do when their favorite platform is down. Women especially need it, you’ll notice the change in behavior of the women in your life when she is separated from social media.
The Instagram and Facebook outages come shortly after a whistleblower came forward and claimed to CBS News that the company could do more to protect against hate speech and misinformation but prioritizes profits over its users.
Following the Sunday “60 Minutes” interview with the whistleblower, identified as Frances Haugen, a data scientist, the company put out a statement defending itself.
“We’ve invested heavily in people and technology to keep our platform safe, and have made fighting misinformation and providing authoritative information a priority,” the company said in a statement. “If any research had identified an exact solution to these complex challenges, the tech industry, governments, and society would have solved them a long time ago.”
After the whistleblower’s identity was made public, Sens. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn, and Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., announced the Senate will hold a hearing in the Senate Consumer Protection Subcommittee Tuesday to hear from Haugen about Facebook and Instagram’s impacts on young users.
Facebook’s stock took a severe hit Monday following the whistleblower’s revelations and the outage. As of 3:45 p.m., its stock was trading at $325.45 a share, a 5% drop from its closing price Friday afternoon.
The situation promoted other social media sites to make some fun jokes.
Twitter’s official account tweeted a cheeky post, “hello literally everyone,” Monday afternoon.
The tweet prompted several funny replies from other major accounts, including McDonald’s, Burger King, and Starbucks, which tweeted, “Perfect time for a coffee break.”
Facebook’s safety head was questioned by lawmakers last Thursday over what the company knew about the potential for Instagram to be harmful to young users’ mental health.
The Senate Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety and Data Security convened the hearing in the wake of a Wall Street Journal investigation citing Facebook’s own internal research, allegedly leaked by a whistleblower, that found Instagram adversely impacted mental health issues in teens, especially girls.
“We’re here today because Facebook has shown us once again that it is incapable of holding itself accountable,” Blumenthal said in his opening remarks last week.
Facebook defended itself against the bipartisan scrutiny at the hearing.
“We understand that recent reporting has raised a lot of questions about our internal research, including research we do to better understand young people’s experiences on Instagram,” Antigone Davis, Facebook’s global head of safety, stated in written testimony. “We strongly disagree with how this reporting characterized our work, so we want to be clear about what that research shows, and what it does not show.”
The new, upcoming committee hearing, titled “Protecting Kids Online: Testimony from a Facebook Whistleblower,” is scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday.
Some have speculated that this blackout is to reinstate stricter hate speech laws and remove a bulk amount of users. We all know that our time to exist on these platforms at all is limited. Most of us has already been banned on at least one of these platforms, the answer to this is to just make another account. Soon that may not be an option. Wurzelroot (a prominent right wing tiktok personality) was completely blocked from using the tiktok app on his device. We’re all just persecuted good ole boys trying to have some fun. Nothing else to do anymore for most people. They are forced to search online. Social media does have inverse effects on mental health especially in women. It’s literal psychological warfare. These people act stupid and need to conduct thousands of studies to see if the sky is blue. It’s all on purpose. Women are crazy now, game is rigged against men even more than it already was. They should not be online, and if you see one don’t feed into their sickness.
These people focus so much on stopping the spread of misinformation and hate speech. While letting all the other sick things have free. Hardcore pornography in 4k is in front of 11 year old eyes and that’s just how to stop , but when they’re on stormfront it’s an American Tragedy.
Shadow President Is Beautiful Loser
Former President Donald Trump has asked a federal judge in Florida to force Twitter to restore his account, which the company suspended in January following the deadly storming of the U.S. Capitol.
Trump’s attorneys on Friday filed a motion in U.S. District Court in Miami seeking a preliminary injunction against Twitter and its CEO, Jack Dorsey. They argue that Twitter is censoring Trump in violation of his First Amendment rights, according to the motion.
Twitter declined to comment Saturday on Trump’s filing.
The company permanently banned Trump from its platform days after his followers violently stormed the Capitol building to try to block Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s presidential win. Twitter cited concerns that Trump would incite further violence. Prior to the ban, Trump had roughly 89 million followers on Twitter.
Trump was also suspended from Facebook and Google’s YouTube over similar concerns that he would provoke violence. Facebook’s ban will last two years, until Jan. 7, 2023, after which the company will review his suspension. YouTube’s ban is indefinite.
In July, Trump filed lawsuits in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against all three tech companies and their CEOs, claiming that he and other conservatives have been wrongfully censored. The motion for a preliminary injunction was filed as part of Trump’s case against Twitter.
Damn that’s crazy, it would be nice if he had more power. Maybe if he was in a position of influence he could get something done.
This nigga was the president of the United States of America when he was banned from Twitter. This is so pathetic. This is a a prime example of the number one problem of the Trump administration. He didn’t get anything done, for whatever reason. The Trump of now lives in the Trump of 2016’s shadow. He’s shilling the vaccine to his supporters! Why? What does he have to gain? I honestly believe that after January 6th something went down that completely altered Trump. CIA brainwash, torture, or something we cannot even comprehend are all on the table. The fact is if we stand with Trump, we will be eaten alive. He is leading sheep to the slaughter. The MAGA Movement was a great thing, 2016 vibes were unmatched. It is 100% clear now that we will have to move along without him. The America First movement is the best way for the American Right-Wing to go.
