WhatsApp recently suffered a massive outage globally, lasting over six hours, but over the entire period of WhatsApp down, Telegram added 70 million users. Along with WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram were also closed for about six hours on Monday evening.
The social media giant has blamed a faulty configuration change for the outage affecting over 3.5 billion users worldwide. While the Facebook outage may have hurt the company, its rivals Telegram and Signal certainly had a profitable day.
