LinkedIn suffers widespread outage, a day after Facebook & Instagram went down

Recommended Posts



LinkedIn, the professional networking giant, recently experienced a widespread outage, affecting several countries. The outage left users unable to log in, prompting them to voice their frustrations on other social media platforms. This incident occurred just a day after Facebook and Instagram also suffered outages, leaving users scrambling for a social media fix.


The cause of the LinkedIn outage remains unknown yet. LinkedIn, which was acquired by Microsoft in 2016, had been gradually shifted over to Microsoft Azure since 2019. Interestingly, the cloud platform did not appear to be experiencing any wider issues at the time.


The outage, which lasted for about an hour around March 6, 12:50 PST, saw about 48,000 reports of users being unable to access their LinkedIn accounts. Despite the inconvenience, the situation sparked a wave of humor on other social media platforms, with users sharing memes and jokes about the situation.



This incident highlights the increasing reliance on social media platforms in our daily lives, and raises questions about the robustness of these platforms’ infrastructures. As we continue to navigate the digital age, such incidents serve as a reminder of the challenges that lie ahead.


What are your thoughts on this? How did the LinkedIn outage impact you? Do you think such outages are becoming more common, and if so, what could be the potential implications?
