Facebook Inc (NASDAQ :FB) shares dropped 5% Monday after the company suffered a major outage on its Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp apps. Frances Haugen, a whistleblower who accused Facebook Inc of prioritizing profits over users, interviewed the service and it went offline within one day.
Facebook's massive outage has a powerful impact
CNBC reported that Facebook experienced its worst outage since 2008, when its main applications went offline. The DownDetector website monitored the situation in many countries across Europe, Asia and Latin America as well as Canada, Australia and the United States.
These users couldn't use Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp because the company servers were down. In 2008, the service was down for almost a day and affected 80 million accounts.
Facebook stock plunged by 5% Monday, adding to the 15% drop in mid-September. Mark Zuckerberg's wealth fell by $6.6 billion in just a few hours, dropping him to the sixth spot on the billionaire list.
The market was down broadly Monday with the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite falling over 2%. CNBC reports that the decline was especially severe among social media stocks like Twitter, Snap and Pinterest, which each dropped more than 5%.
The company's outage is compounded by the blazing controversy that arose from The Wall Street Journal revelations about how it allegedly prioritises profit over the welfare its users.
Haugen stated that he saw conflict of interest at Facebook over the years. Facebook chose to maximize its own interests like making more money.
Haugen had submitted around eight documents to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), in an effort to expose the company. The Senate Commerce Subcommittee had to deal with similar allegations.
