Social media outlets such as Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp have been shut down. Mark Zuckerberg’s loss is reported to be more than $ 7 billion. According to a Bloomberg report, Zuckerberg has slipped to fifth place in the list of billionaires as Facebook shares plummeted due to the global crisis. The impact was exacerbated by the withdrawal of advertisements by large companies after Facebook’s apps, such as WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger, were shut down. Social media activity was reportedly partially disrupted for about six hours.

Before the crash, Zuckerberg was ranked third on the list of world billionaires. Shares of Facebook fell 5 percent yesterday alone. Shares have been down 15 per cent since mid-September. The CEO of Tech Giant has blamed the disruption on social media services. Mark Zuckerberg has personally apologized to millions of users around the world. He also made a promise to return to service immediately. Currently the services are back to normal. The company has not yet clarified the reason for the disruption, although services have begun to be available to users.
