Re: Nope, never saw this coming

Facebook, Google, Instagram, WhatsApp and YouTube are some of the biggest stores of content in the world and all of it lives on IPv6.

Facebook has even dropped IPv4 entirely and only uses IPv6 internally. They just have a bunch of edge servers that translate to IPv4 for visitors that don't have IPv4 yet.
