WhatsApp, Facebook’s cross-platform chat app, saw record-breaking users on New Year’s Day because some wisely chose to celebrate the end of 2020 this year. Because even though that cursed year from Hades is finally behind us, the Govt-19 epidemic is over Of course not.
More than 1.4 billion video and voice calls were placed on New Year’s Day, in a single day of use, in a single day A company blog post. Although Facebook said New Year’s Eve was historically its busiest night, it saw a spike of about 50% compared to last year.
It was also a big day for the company’s other chat app, Facebook Messenger, which saw almost twice as many group video calls as its daily average. There were 55 million live broadcasts worldwide on Facebook and Instagram.
“[I]n March 2020, the early days of the epidemic created traffic spikes that would have multiplied the New Year celebration – which lasted several months, ”Caitlin Banford, Facebook’s technical project manager, said in a post. “Behind the scenes, Facebook Engineering came together to make unprecedented performance improvements and make our infrastructure more flexible.”
The successful hosting of the record-breaking users on New Year’s Day is a testament to its ability to test its beef infrastructure during those months and to withstand the increased traffic in its applications amid widespread locks.
“This year, New Year’s Eve was very different, and there were engineering groups in Facebook’s applications that were ready to support any issue, so the world might sound like 2021.”
Who knows, maybe this time next year the world will be a little less crowded and can celebrate the New Year in person again. Or we may be caught counting in our underground bunkers by the end of 2021 Murder Hornets And rodent hurricanes pass over the surface. My guess is that this is a 50/50 shot at this point.
