Instagram down for users this afternoon. According to user reports, Instagram is not working properly at the moment.
It is actually a rough week for the social media app which suffered a 6-hour outage 4 days ago.
This Friday, the main problem is that Instagram’s homepage does not display. At first, users thought it was due to poor connectivity but then Instagram Down Detector updated a graphic showing more than 30,000 user reports.
About two hours ago people started having difficulties sending DMs and also receiving delayed messages on Instagram because the service was down. Facebook, Instagram’s owner, said that they were aware of the problems and they were working to solve them as soon as possible.
This is what Facebook tweeted: “We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and we apologize for any inconvenience,”
Instagram also tweeted about the social media platform’s inconvenient:
Almost half of Instagram users reported problems with the app. “Instagram down again?” was the most searched question some minutes ago. Fortunately, for the time being, only this social media platform is suffering some issues. Let’s cross our fingers so that Facebook and Whatsapp don’t start having problems again. However, Twitter will always be there for us to keep us informed!
Just four days ago, on October 5th, there was a widespread outage at Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp that lasted 6 hours and left a great part of the world without connection.
