Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has revealed that he has no worry about the money lost or the number of users who migrated to other social media platforms during a seven-hour outage of his services on Monday.
Zuckerberg, who made this known in a Facebook post late Tuesday, said he was rather concerned about those who rely on his services to connect with friends and family.
Shares of Facebook, which has almost 2 billion daily active users, plummeted by 5.5 per cent within this period, the firm’s lowest fall in 2021 while Zuckerberg also lost nearly $5.9 billion in his worth during the outage, TOS NEW reported on Tuesday.
However, the tech founder wrote, “The SEV that took down all our services yesterday (Monday) was the worst outage we’ve had in years.
“We’ve spent the past 24 hours debriefing how we can strengthen our systems against this kind of failure. This was also a reminder of how much our work matters to people.
“The deeper concern with an outage like this isn’t how many people switch to competitive services or how much money we lose, but what it means for the people who rely on our services to communicate with loved ones, run their businesses, or support their communities.”
