Message from narendra modi (PM) we
have had an over usage of user names on whatsapp
Messenger. We are requesting all users to forward this
message to their entire contact list. If you do not forward
this message, we will take it as your account is invalid
and it will be deleted within the next 48 hours. DO
NOT ignore my words or whatsapp will no longer
recognise your activation. If you wish to re-activate your
account after it has been deleted, a charge of 499.00 will
be added to your monthly bill. We are also aware of the
issue involving the pictures updates not showing. We are
working diligently at fixing this problem and it will be up
and running as soon as possible. Thank you for your
cooperation from the modi team. WhatsApp is going
to cost you money soon. The only way that it will stay
free is if you are a frequent user i.e. you have at least 50
people you are chatting with. To become a frequent user
send this message to 10 people who receive it (2 ticks)
and your WhatsApp logo will change color.

Send this message to 10 people. When you do the light will turn blue

ITS TRUE …… U get blue TICKS

Messages like texts appears to work, photos, videos and voice messages will not send through, according to various reports.
Instead, users just see a message reading “download failed” and the content will not arrive.
The same error message advises users to ask for the picture to be sent over again. But doing so does not seem to work.
Unusually, a preview of the picture does appear to be able to get through. It means that recipients can see a version of the pictures that are being sent – but it is fuzzy and the details cannot be seen.
Sometimes, an error message will show confirming that something has gone wrong, though it does not appear to show up every time.
The wording of the error messages appears to change for different users. But many of them suggest solutions that don’t actually seem to work.

Complaints particularly came from the UK and South America, according to the outage tracking website Down Detector. The number of reports were relatively limited for a WhatsApp outage – but that might be a consequence of the strangely specific nature of the problem.

Unlike many other major services, WhatsApp does not maintain a status page to allow people to check whether its systems are online. It does have a Twitter account that was once used to alert people to issues, but it has not been used for five years.

Last time all three of Facebook’s major services broke, the outage lasted for many hours. It later blamed that problem on a server issue that had a knock-on effect on Instagram and WhatsApp, as well as Facebook, since the three use shared infrastructure.

As a result of a server configuration change, many people had trouble accessing our apps and services,” Facebook posted on Twitter after that previous outage was fixed. “We’ve now resolved the issues and our systems are recovering. We’re very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate everyone’s patience.”

When those problems happened in March, they were said to be perhaps the biggest outage in the history of the internet, hitting millions of people.
β€œBy duration, this is by far the largest outage we have seen since the launch of Downdetector in 2012,” Tom Sanders, co-founder of Downdetector, told Techcrunch in the wake of that outage. β€œOur systems processed about 7.5 million problem reports from end users over the course of this incident. Never before have we such a large scale outage.”
