Elon Musk Raises Eyebrows with Meta Critique After Social Media Outage

Musk’s Accusations

Tesla’s Elon Musk didn’t hold back in his criticism of the recent outage that affected Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, attributing the technical glitch to the platforms being preoccupied with “selling their user’s data.” Musk’s pointed remarks come in the wake of a frustrating outage that left countless users disconnected from their go-to social media platforms.

Implications of the Outage

The outage, which occurred just a day after a previous technical hiccup, raises red flags regarding the stability and reliability of Meta-owned platforms. Users were left scrambling for alternatives to express their dissatisfaction with the intermittent service disruptions.

Meta Platforms Inc.’s Response

The recent outage shines a harsh spotlight on Meta Platforms Inc., amid swirling allegations of data misuse. The company’s reputation took another hit after recent court documents revealed a questionable data-sharing arrangement with Netflix, allowing access to private user messages. Despite Meta’s denial of these accusations as “shockingly untrue,” public scrutiny continues to mount.

Musk’s History with Meta Platforms

Elon Musk’s clash with Meta Platforms dates back to earlier in the year, with the tech mogul accusing the company of inaccurately claiming credit for sales originating from his former social media venture, X. This public spat underscores the deep-rooted tensions between Musk and Meta Platforms, as they continue to navigate the volatile landscape of social media controversies.
