Instagram servers appear to have gone down, leaving thousands of users unable to connect. The state of the Instagram server makes reading grim for fans, who have complained about the app not working. The independent website Down Detector has received thousands of reports that Instagram is crashing. Outage Tracker monitors social mentions around certain topics to spot service outages around the world. Down Detector’s outage map shows that Instagram issues primarily 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 puzzled, but most can see the fun side.
One user seems to be having trouble with DMs: “Instagram my DMs are messed up and every time I refresh, especially the general folder, it all goes away as if no message had ever been sent.
“I tried removing and reinstalling the app and it didn’t work. How can I solve this problem? “
Another wrote: “Why is it that when I try to take a break from work, instagram goes down so I can’t even mind scrolling for ten minutes.”
“Ummm guys, Instagram is down somehow ?? I can’t access my account please help me.”
