Popular photo and video sharing platform, Instagram was down for several users across the world, mainly the United States and the United Kingdom. On Monday night, many users reported that the app was down even as it was partially working for some people. Several users reported that they were not able to access many features, while some stated that Instagram highlighted the 'try again later' message on their screens.
According to users, some features of the app were down while others were limited. Even so, the outage was not related to the user's account. In United States, the mass outage was reported from New York, Los Angeles, and Washington DC. According to Downdetector, the most reported issue was the glitch in the news feed, followed by stories and the Instagram website. Users soon took to the micro-blogging platform Twitter and used the hashtag '#Instagramdown' which started trending.
While some users revealed that they received the 'try again later' message, others stated that they received the 'We limit how often you can do certain things on Instagram to protect our community," message on their phones. This is not the first instance of Instagram down this year, as earlier in April many others reported that they had faced a similar issue. However, there is no clarity on the issue. Here are some netizens reactions:
