Icons of Messenger, Facebook and WhatsApp

The internet’s biggest social media platforms are down at multiple locations around the globe. WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook and Messenger, all linked to Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook Inc, were inaccessible as reported by its users.

Minutes after the downtime started, users made their way to platforms like Twitter and Telegram to post their grief and memes.

According to authentic sources, the Facebook servers were not accessible which led to a global downtime for users at multiple locations.

Billions of users were affected as a result of this global downtime. Meanwhile, there has been no official word from neither of the social networking giants.

Facebook has a massive 2.23 billion active users. Messenger, which works with the Facebook platform, has 1.3 billion users.

Instagram and WhatsApp are not dependent on Facebook for their services and both have 1 billion and 1.5 billion active users.

Users of all these inaccessible networks flooded Twitter and Telegram with their humorous messages.

Hashtags like #FacebookDown, #InstagramDown and #WhatsappDown have been trending globally.

It’s still hard to tell how long it will take before the networks go back live to normal.

Former Peruvian president Alan Garcia

Former Peruvian president Alan Garcia has shot himself moments before police arrived at his home. He was being arrested on account of bribery claims. A judicial order was earlier issued for the arrest of the former president.

Officers rushed the two-time president of Peru to Casimiro Ulloa hospital in the capital city of Lima. According to police and media reports, Alan Gracia remains in a critical condition.

Alan Garcia has served as the president Peru twice, first from 1985 to 1990 and then again from 2006 to 2011.

The former president is accused of taking bribes from Brazilian construction company Odebrech.

Alan Garcia rejected the claims in his Tweets as well as in press interviews.

Brazilian construction company Odebrecht has admitted paying almost $30m (£23m) in bribes to Alan Garcia since2004.

Odebrecht is at the center of Latin America’s biggest corruption scandal after admitting in a 2016 plea agreement with the U.S. Justice Department that it paid corrupt officials across Latin America nearly $800 million in exchange for major infrastructure contracts.

Tiger Woods wins the Masters 2019

The commentator goes… “many doubted we’d never see it” while Tiger Woods was busy claiming his first title since 2008.

With his 15th major title win, Tiger Woods has now secured his 5th Green Jacket in what’s being called as the greatest comeback in the history of sports.

That’s a 14-year wait for Tiger Woods to win The Masters and an 11-year wait to win a major title.

“Last year I was very lucky to be playing again. At the previous Champions Dinner I was really struggling and missed a couple of years of not playing this great tournament and now I’m the champion. Twenty two years between wins, it’s a long time and it’s unreal for me to experience this. My Mom was here, she was the in 1997 as well. I’m just so happy and excited and I’m at a loss for words.”
