Facebook Down – The Future of Social Media

Share this post

On October 4th, 2021, at approximately noon, Facebook and its connected apps faced a global-wide shut down for nearly 6 hours. What was reported was that a DNS issue had occurred and caused the shutdown. While DNS issues are normal in the tech and internet world, a large scale is very uncommon, especially for nearly 6 hours. What is most interesting, though, is the fact that this had occurred only hours after a whistleblower came forth and leaked thousands of internal documents.

You may think this might be a good thing. Finally, someone is taking on the social media giant that has been open about censoring conservatives, pushing fake fact checks, and much more. However, this recent whistleblower action could spell even more disaster for free-thinking minds when using Facebook. The future of social media is changing, and this incident could push the social media giant off the edge, with conservatives leaving the platform for more free-thinking places to speak their mind.
