Whats app is the worlds leading online chat application.Whats app is avaible on multiple platforms making it a widely used application.However recently whats app faced a glitch.WhatsApp has reportedly fixed the glitch that sprung up earlier this week that showed “error:uknown” as contact status. According to reports, the glitch had affected thousands of users worldwide.
Whats app cleverly used whats app to address the issue using many social platforms like twitter.Here’s what was said.
This bug as usual was followed by a hoax message urging people who use the app to forward a message to all their contacts or face having their accounts deleted.
The viral message is from the CEO of WhatsApp, one ‘Jim Balsamic’, and reads, “We have had an over usage of user names on whatsapp Messenger. We are requesting all users to forward this message to their entire contact list.
Here’s the complete message :
” Message from Jim Balsamic (CEO of Whatsapp): we have had an over usage of user names on whatsapp Messenger. We are requesting all users to forward this message to their entire contact list. If you do not forward this message, we will take it as your account is invalid and it will be deleted within the next 48 hours. Please DO NOT ignore this message or whatsapp will no longer recognise your activation. If you wish to re-activate your account after it has been deleted, a charge of 25.00 will be added to your monthly bill “
This isn’t the first time such messages have been viral on whats app.Whats app has to regularly check for such messages and then declare them as hoax messages.It is a request , whats app will never make you pay for what they offer.If so , you will be notified via an official message from whats app.So all in all the error
“ Status Unavailable “ is a bug that whats app is facing and there’s no need to worry.As said in their blog this error should be completely removed world wide by the end of this weak.One last advide : do not pay heads to such viral messages.Live free and make others carefree
