Facebook server down and our concern

It would not be wrong to say that we are now living on the Internet. Now we depend on the Internet not only for communication but also for business or work.

Facebook is no longer just a means of communication, but it has given birth to a new possibility through F-Commerce.

Besides, the issue of Facebook’s server down is not a new phenomenon today. Facebook’s server has been down many times before.

In such a situation, our monopoly on the Internet can be a cause for concern. So, since the next world is going to be a technology-based world, we need to be more proactive in dealing with such problems.

Especially when a giant company like Facebook can stay for a long time, do the new and small online services easily make it a concern.
