Instagram is working on a new updated feature that will notify users before any outage or any technical issue inside the app. The attempt is to ensure uninterrupted services after two recent outages.The testing is currently under process in US and will take a couple of months to be launched as a full-fledged updated feature for users across the globe.
Recently, on October 4, there was a six-hours outage on all the allied platforms of Facebook including Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger that deprived its 3.5 billion users to access any of the platforms of this social media giant. Facebook is also planning to launch a feature that will enable users to know in advance whether their account is at any risk of being disabled.
Facebook has been constantly on Twitter’s target and has been a center of memes and jokes on Twitter on the outage issue. Moreover, the former employee’s (Frances Haugen) accusations that the company focuses more on profit than clamping down hate speeches and misinformation has been already proven a menace for Facebook.
Haugen, who provided documents that supported a Wall Street Journal investigation and a senate hearing on how Instagram has been harming teen girls, has now agreed to meet Facebook’s Oversight Board to tell them what she felt during her tenure with Facebook.
