Good morning, *|MERGE1|*. It’s October 5.
Last night, Facebook, Insta and WhatsApp went down for a while and I kept checking the apps to see if they have started working…which made me realise how much we depend on these apps for communication. 

What did you do when these apps went down? 

It is going to be a sunny day!
