Three famous social media platforms, WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook stopped functioning on Monday evening.
All three apps stopped working shortly before 5.00 p.m. Nigerian time.
Other products related to the apps, such as Facebook Workplace, were also observed to have stopped working.
Users of Facebook and Instagram applications could not view posts on refresh, while WhatsApp messages could not be sent or received.
The cause of the glitch was yet to be ascertained as of the time of filing this report.
However, the Federal Government of Nigeria is not responsible as claimed by some people. The three platforms are not working in most parts of the world, not only in Nigeria.
