WhatsApp, the rapidly expanding mobile messaging app, suffered an outage for more than three hours on Saturday, frustrating users just days after its acquisition by Facebook for $19 billion. Earlier, the service had said it was "experiencing server issues" without providing further details. Facebook referred questions on the outage to WhatsApp representatives, who did not immediately respond. On Saturday, some of those users took to other forms of social media, including blogs and Twitter to report the outage and vent their frustration.
There will be more outages at whatsapp going forward since the workers there are now multimillionaires and they don't really give a rat's behind what level of service they provide going forward. I mean is there really any incentive to produce when you have so much money all you can think about is spending it. 55 employees at whatsapp are now partying like wild animals and no one is watching the house burn down. Look for more major slip up at Whatsapp and more desperation moves on Facebook part.
Nice to know after spending almost 20 billion in cash and stock, you fine running machine no longer runs fine and furthermore seems to have some major back up power issues. Could we see whasapp start having routine power outages going forward?
