Due to a massive outage, users are unable to refresh their feeds or view Instagram Stories.
THOUSANDS OF angry Instagram users have taken to social media this morning to vent their frustrations about the social media platform. Users are unable to add new photographs or videos to their Instagram Stories, according to complaints.
Thousands of Instagram users have been unable to access the popular social media platform. Users on both the iPhone and Android apps appear to have been affected by the outage, with some Instagram users unable to scroll through their feeds, publish new photographs or albums, or view Instagram Reels. Instagram Stories – ephemeral displays of photographs and videos that are only viewable for 24 hours – appear to be the source of a large number of complaints.
When users try to add new photographs or videos to their Instagram Story, an error notice appears that says, “Something went wrong, please try again later.”
It’s worth mentioning that if you use Sky Broadband, you may not be affected by Instagram’s problems, even if you can’t refresh your feed. Thousands of Sky customers in Wales and South-East England have been left without internet as a result of the broadband provider’s prolonged outage. The problems began around 6.30 p.m. last night and have yet to be fixed.
More than 6,000 Instagram users have resorted to social media to complain about troubles with the service, according to independent website DownDetector, which records reports from customers across social media to monitor the operation of web services. DownDetector uses the geolocation data associated with these posts to indicate that the majority of complaints appear to originate in London, Manchester, and Glasgow. The outage appears to be affecting users in other European nations as well.
Instagram has yet to respond to reports of an outage.
The outage isn’t listed under the Known Issues button on the Facebook-owned service’s Help site. This is where Instagram often lists service issues that will affect a large number of people. Unfortunately, since the difficulties were originally reported at 8 a.m. this morning, the list of known issues hasn’t been updated.
After you notice “Something went wrong, please try again later,” you’ll be rushing to Twitter. pic.twitter.com/TxFB0nl4sX #instagramdown
#instagramdown I thought it was my internet.
I’m trying to upload a tale within the previous 5 minutes, but it won’t go through. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled Instagram, but I’m still unable to log in. I’m sorry, but Instagram is down, you moron. #instagramdown. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
