WhatsApp Was Down Globally And Pakistanis Started Panicking In The Funniest Way

By Mashal Abbasi | 3 Jul, 2019

Question of the day:

If you’ve spent the better part of today reconnecting your wi-fi, restarting your phone and refreshing your apps in order to get WhatsApp to start working, you’re not alone.

You’re probably getting this message on your phone.

or this one

Don’t worry, it’s not just you. The instant messaging service has been down globally all day, along with Facebook and Instagram. Basically, today is not a good day for social media. One thing to note, as this Twitter user put it, is that this is apparently the FOURTH time this year this has happened!

Pakistani Twitter, AKA the country’s goldmine of humor, is ALL OVER IT, especially since Twitter is one of the few social media networks not affected.

Most people compared it to Pakistan’s chances of reaching the cricket World Cup semi-finals (also down FYI)

Some people were just plain sad.

While Facebook has yet to release an official statement (they can only do it on Twitter right now LOL) a number of news websites have reported that the systems are apparently down for maintenance. So head outside, read a book, talk to your family maybe? In a few hours, you’ll be sucked back into endless groups, chats, and stories anyway.

How has the outage affected you? Let us know in the comments below!
