  • in reply to: Will Facebook suffer as a result of its outage yesterday? #9936

    I don’t think Facebook will suffer dramatically. It is a giant company and they will be able to get back on their feet. HOWEVER, it is safe to say they have been attracting more and more negative attention recently so it is yet another hit for them.

    Side note on consequences of this outage… It showed how much we are dependent on ONE company. One might ask a question, should the monopoly in social media Facebook has be allowed? Remember, WhatsApp and Instagram were independent apps that got bought by Facebook cause it saw competition in them. I wonder if regulators will (finally) try to breakdown the power they have in the market. But even if they decide to take some action, it won’t be an easy operation…
