Instagram has CRASHED around the world

Instagram crashed for some users around the world, with people complaining they were unable to load new pictures on the app. 

Reports have now stopped coming in and it appears to be resolved,but there is no official word from the Facebook-owned site.  

The home page was displaying older pictures but new content failed to appear, at least for some users.

The problem stretched to stories as well, although older stories could still be loaded and viewed. 

The reason behind the issue remains unknown but the outage started around 3:37pm BST.

Affected areas included Europe, Australia, South America and the mainland US and a smattering of users complained of login and website trouble (seven and five per cent of complaints, respectively).

But the primary issue appeared to be with the news feed as 86 per cent of all issues centred around the lack of content loading, according to outage site downdetector. 

This was the second outage of the last 24 hours for Instagram as a spike in user complaints was also seen around 8pm BST yesterday.  

It comes exactly a month after the Mark Zuckerberg empire of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp was struck by a huge outage.  

Facebook and Instagram were forced to apologise after users at this time were unable to load the sites and were faced with a ‘can’t be reached’ message for four hours.  

Whatsapp, owned by Facebook, also suffered a four hour outage for some users internationally.

Downdetector.co.uk reported over 7,700 complaints that Facebook was down in the UK. 

MailOnline has approached Instagram for comment.
