A MYSTERIOUS outage on LinkedIn caused massive confusion among users.
After the technical difficulties, several professionals using LinkedIn raised their concerns via social media.
Has LinkedIn gone down?
LinkedIn appeared to be down for many users as of Monday 6th June 2022 around 10:30am.
According to Downdetector, about 76% of accounts said it was the end of the website.
About 22% of the accounts that reported problems said it was a server issue.
It appeared to affect users in Washington DC, New York City, and Boston more than other areas.
It also affected users in the UK.
Weeks later, on Tuesday, June 21, LinkedIn went down again during another technical incident.
During the day’s reported issues, US users experienced outages that spiked in the morning.
How have LinkedIn users reacted?
On Twitter, many users found humor in the failure, others were visibly upset.
User @negroprogrammer tweeted: “linkedin down?? how am I supposed to assess the value of a person now?”
Other users accused the networking and recruiting site of slipping prematurely over the summer vacation.
On the other hand, many users simply wanted to know what’s going on.
What caused the outage?
The issues, which now appear to be resolved, may have been caused by a problem with the DNS certificate on the company’s server.
This is a back-end website issue and was probably caused accidentally while the company was updating their website.
