It appears that the Instagram servers have gone down, leaving thousands of users unable to log in. Instagram’s server status makes for a grim read for fans, who have complained that the app isn’t working. Independent website Down Detector has received thousands of reports that Instagram is crashing. Outage Tracker monitors social signals on certain topics to detect when services are down around the world. Dawn’s outage map shows that Instagram issues mainly affect users in the UK and Europe.
Needless to say, Instagram users have complained about the outage on the social media platform Twitter.
Some Instagram users are angry about the outage, others are confused, but most see the funny side.
One user seems to be having issues with direct messages: “My Instagram DMs are down and every time I update, especially the public folder, everything disappears as if no messages were sent before.
« I tried deleting and reinstalling the app and it didn’t work. How can I fix that? »
Another writes: « Why is it that when I try to take a break from work, instagram crashes so I can’t even scroll without thinking for ten minutes. »
“Instagram is down somehow guys?? I can’t access my account please help me.”
