    The Many Masks of Social Media. Whatsapp goes down.

    Whatsapp went down for a few hours and the many people were so angry. I could not believe the amount of articles I saw on it today. It makes me think we have as a population become somewhat conscious of dependency on social media websites. ( platforms ). Facebook has seen a ton of scrutiny for "making us addicts". I wonder if something like whatsapp doesn't fall in that same class. Even google my business has handles now like twitter. a App where you can communicate/chat with your clients recommend other businesses, favourite businesses, likes, reviews and share your experience via uploading media onto a gmb page as a client.

    Gmb and whatapp ( whatapp business ) are startingdown the same road facebook did by making business personal ( which is great ) but as we've seen with facebook ( what they do down the line in terms of expanding and our data ) I wonder if they too wont be susceptible to that same "forbidden fruit".

    I'm glad to say I didn't notice WhatsApp was down.

    I was on-board with you. I used to use social media and after a few years I dropped it. However in the business that I am in and many others social media has become just as important as having a website. If it weren't for that I wouldn't have known either.
