Disruptions in social networks are not uncommon, sometimes they can last up to a day. This affects almost all popular sites, including TikTok, Twitter, etc. Vyacheslav Makarov, IT expert and one of the creators of World of Tanks, voiced several reasons for the problems. Sometimes they are due to the introduction of updates, and the servers are subjected to significant loads, because millions of users can visit social networks every day. Sometimes this leads to the fall of servers, it also happens that the process is associated with an attack directly on the network. Another type of failure is ISP intervention.
Social media has the same methods of dealing with such problems. User data does not disappear anywhere, as their copies are stored on other servers located in different locations. The maximum that a user can lose is one or more posts. Most often, for troubleshooting, ready-made scripts are simply launched, which are prepared solutions, writes “360”. MINDSMITH representative Ruslan Yusufov shared that sometimes there are problems with DNS. Most companies use one such server. Data protection is ensured by backup.
