Here are five things in technology that happened this past week and how they affect your business. Did you miss them?
1 — The Venmo app went down last Monday.
Reports last week confirmed that Venmo—the popular payment app— went down for several hours this past Monday, and that the software’s desktop version was also impacted during the interruption. Issues with Venmo began on the morning of December 30th and then progressed throughout the day. Several difficulties during this time were reported by thousands of users, such as frustrations regarding cards being declined and rent and bills going unpaid due to the system issues. By 4:40pm Eastern time, Venmo’s services were fully restored, although the company has not disclosed what specifically caused the issues. (Source: Pymnts)
