Instagram does not seem to be available to many users around the world. The problem seems to be unevenly distributed as it works for some users rather than others. The week of downtime continues with another high profile downtime. Instagram users turn to Twitter and other social platforms to complain about outages. The hashtag #Instagramdown is all the rage on Twitter now, and several Android users have told us that their app has crashed even though others have confirmed that it is still working just fine.
The official Instagram handle on Twitter hasn’t posted anything about the outage so far, but that Trend hashtag makes it clear that this is a common problem. According to the Status Tracker website at DownDetectorInstagram issues picked up speed around 5:00 p.m. Friday and appear to have peaked around 8:00 p.m.
Instagram and other Facebook products like WhatsApp and Messenger, as well as Facebook, were also down a little earlier this month. In this outage, most of the downtime was reported in most of Europe, although it grew and affected other regions as well.
The image sharing social network is joining a number of popular platforms that have faced outages this week. We saw a major Google outage earlier in the week, and Netflix was also offline on Thursday. Instant messaging platform Telegram faced an outage on Thursday, and Facebook’s own Instagram joined that growing list on Friday.
It is not clear whether these failures have common themes. Google’s outage on Monday was due to an issue with the company’s automated quota management system according tog to the company. The resulting outage has shut down all of Google’s popular services, including Google Docs, YouTube, and Gmail. The other companies have not yet released details on what caused the problems on their platforms.
