To answer your question: Yes.

Well, as far as I'm concerned anyway.

Re: Facebook and Instagram outage not worthy of coverage ?

Great question, Steve. We cover outages when we can. Some outages are more important than others (ISPs and multi-tenant cloud services, especially) so we jump on those. Facebook going down for a few minutes, not so much. Sometimes we're all working on other stories, and by the time we drop everything, and start writing up the outage, the thing comes back online.

The Verge is about as techie as a bent paperclip. It's a marketing vehicle for Silicon Valley.
