Pornhub, another of the winners with the fall of Facebook | Digital Trends Spanish

The massive fall of Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram had unexpected winners, such as Telegram, which added close to 70 million followers.

The “blackout” also caused visits to Pornhub to skyrocket.

According to the adult video portal, its platform experienced a sudden increase in the number of visits on Monday, October 4, just at the time when Facebook fell, which lasted for more than six hours.

“Facebook, Instagram, and Whatsapp were out of service for several hours on October 4, 2021. As of 12 p.m. ET, Pornhub’s traffic increased by as much as 10.5 percent, which is equivalent to half a million additional users during every hour that Facebook services were down, ”notes a site post.

The platform also referred to a similar cut suffered by Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger in March 2019.

At the time, the porn content site hit “as much as 19 percent above average at 7 pm, which is already one of the highest viewing periods.”

The theory that Pornhub has is that, with the impossibility of entering social networks, many internet users visit these types of sites while the other platforms remain down.

During the coronavirus pandemic, adult content sites saw the number of visits increase, which coincided with the period when people spent more time in their homes.
