Instagram down AGAIN: Server standing extra up-to-date, Fb’s personal app doesn’t work for hundreds
Instagram down reports are pouring in for the second time this week. The independent outage monitor Down Detector has seen a huge surge in Instagram outage reports, with thousands of users reporting problems. At the time of writing, Down Detector UK has recorded a high of around 19,000 Instagram down notifications.
According to Down Detector statistics, the main problems plaguing affected Instagram users are issues with the iOS and Android apps.
Other reported Instagram issues concern server connection and Instagram newsfeed.
The latest Instagram issues come after a major outage earlier this week that affected all of Facebook’s own apps.
On Monday, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram suffered huge outages that affected millions of users.
These outages lasted six hours and were the longest outages in Facebook’s history.
As the latest Instagram issues surfaced, users flocked to the competing social networking website, Twitter, to report the issues they were facing.
One tweeted, “Both times Instagram was down this week, I spend the whole morning on it with no issues and the moment I try to post something it won’t load.”
While another posted: “Whoever is the head of the household at @instagram and @Facebook pays your light bill”.
One added, “Instagram is back down bye”.
And another wrote: “Instagram don’t let me down, pleeeaaaase”.
As the reported issues with Instagram flooded Facebook and Facebook Messenger users, issues reported tonight as well.
At the time of writing, Down Detector UK has recorded a high of 1,600 Facebook down messages and around 1,000 Messenger down messages.
Regarding today’s service issues, a Facebook spokesperson told Express.co.uk, “We understand that some people have problems accessing Facebook products. We are working to get things back to normal as soon as possible and we apologize for any inconvenience. “
After the major outage earlier this week, Facebook apologized for the significant disruption users experienced.
After the long downtime that affected Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram on Monday, a representative of the technology giant said: “To everyone who was affected by the outages on our platforms today: We’re sorry. We know billions of people and businesses around the world depends on our products and services to keep connected.
“Thank you for your patience while we are back online.”
