Is Instagram Down?
INSTAGRAM is apparently down, with tens of thousands of users reporting problems.
It’s unclear what’s creating their problems right now.
According to Downdetector, a staggering 82% of reported issues are with the app.
Almost 7,000 people have reported issues in the US and that figure continues to rise.
Users in the UK are also reporting problems with their Instagram feed.
We have reached out to Meta, which owns Instagram, for comment.
At 12 p.m. ET, Downdetector began receiving reports that Instagram was down.
People have turned to other types of social media to vent their frustrations.
“The way I come to Twitter every two weeks to search “Instagram down,” one irritated user quipped.
“Is anybody else having difficulties with #Instagram this morning?” another inquired.
“Scrolling down in the main feed only goes through a few posts… And refreshing it doesn’t seem to work.”
Another Instagram user tweeted: “Is Instagram down? I can see only 5 posts, some are even old ones.”
Instagram officials are yet to confirm the issue or give an explanation.
