Read more here to understand how Facebook can track you even if you opt out of using its services.

Who benefited from the Facebook outage?
Monday’s Facebook outage crippled all of the company’s platforms—WhatsApp and Instagram included—and sent the company into its biggest ever technological crisis.

Telegram, the messaging app competitor to WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, gained over 70 million new users on Monday, according to founder Pavel Durov. Snapchat was another big winner, according to Sensor Tower. Its usage grew 23% week-over-week.
Interestingly, while Facebook arch-rival TikTok saw a small bump while Facebook was down, it was only a modest growth of 2% week-over-week.
