Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram were down - and we all lost it!

On Sunday, social media users were left frantic after a massive blackout on three of the big platforms, and you guessed it, the memes were flowing on the Twittersphere.

Social media users of Facebook, WhatsApp, and, my favourite, Instagram were left a bit confused and upset after the services were down on Sunday. 

I believe the complaints were flowing on the interwebs and poor old Mark Zuckerberg was being dragged left, right, and center. Guys, it was a mess!

It is not certain what caused the major blackout, but let's just say that I was relieved when it was back on again. It just goes to show how reliant we are on social media to connect and communicate with our friends and families around the world.

I figured something was wrong after my third WhatsApp message was not delivered, and in natural fashion, I hopped onto Twitter - and low and behold, the memes flowed wild and free.
