Massive social media migrations occur at times when popular services go down. Say for instance, Facebook is down, so everyone goes flocking to Twitter to post updates such as “Is Facebook down for me?”, “Anyone else having troubles with Facebook?”, etc. This causes a massive traffic spike in other networks. Although it won’t definitely be the same if Twitter went down.

What if you need a simple answer to: “Is this site down for me or everyone?”. You need not pounce on different social media sites for getting your answer. Thankfully, there happen to be a few great services on the web that are present just to provide with the exact answer to your query. These websites are the no nonsense types and just do what they are meant for, nothing more, nothing less. The beauty of these services is that they care about their purpose instead of cramming up more and more features.

Below is a list of the 3 best websites to check if a website is down or not.
