Thousands of users of Microsoft’s LinkedIn were affected Wednesday, according to the outage tracking website Downdetector.com.
There were more than 10,000 incidents where people reported problems with the social networking service, according to Downdetector, which detects outages by collecting status reports from a number of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform. The outage may affect a larger number of users.
Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request from Reuters for comment.
Many LinkedIn users reported experiencing problems accessing the online platform. The problem started around 10:30 PM IST and persists for many at the time the copy was written. Many Indian users also encountered a problem when trying to access LinkedIn.
However, this issue is not faced uniformly by all users as Gadgets 360 was able to verify that the platform was working properly.
According to Downdetector, most complaints reported problems accessing the website, while a third of users also experienced problems using the LinkedIn app. Only a limited number of users reported a problem opening their profile.
Meanwhile, LinkedIn has so far not issued a statement about the outage.
A few days ago, Zoom also received several complaints after more than 40,000 users reported experiencing problems trying to access the calling app. However, Zoom released a statement without much delay, assuring its users that it is actively working to resolve the issue. Within an hour, the platform made another announcement to inform that the issue has been resolved and users may no longer experience the issues. The issues were reported from around the world, including India.
