Youngsters, especially students have taken a long breath after the restoration of the websites.
"I am so happy to see that both the websites have been restored, now I will be able to access facebook account from my own mobile," said Meenakshi Sharma, 23, a student.
"I recently watched the movie Barfi but since YouTube wasn't working, I couldn't download the video of my favourite song. I was elated when I could view and download my favourite content from the site. Words fail to express my joy but I am shouting it loud to the people of J&K 'BROADCAST YOURSELF'," she added with joy.
