Facebook-owned Instagram, the photo sharing social media app, is currently facing down time with many users reporting the outage. There is any info on what is causing the problem, but as per DownDetector.com, Instagram has been facing the issue since 3:16 AM EDT (12:46PM IST). But as we check now, it is back up.
As usual, users from all over the world have taken to Twitter to report about the issue. The problem seems to be across desktop portal and mobile app alike. BGR India tried to access the feed, but we have been getting an error that reads “Couldn’t refresh feed.” We reached out to Instagram, and the company spokesperson said, “We’re aware that some users are having trouble accessing their Instagram accounts. We’re working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.”
Users even tried uninstalling and re-installing the app, and switch network, but that hasn’t helped either. In the meantime, here are some tweets of people reacting to the Instagram outage.
