According to some of its users, Instagram is down.
A large number of users hurried to talk about disabled photo-sharing websites.
The problems are being seen across the world, according to tracking website Down Detector.
But this does not seem to impact all users, with certain accounts being able to load as usual. Others also stated that even some aspects of the software are disabled, such as showing someone’s profile.
Problems on Facebook, which operates Instagram, have also been identified. Users indicated that they, too, could not get online on that platform.
WhatsApp, which is the other big component of Facebook’s social networking power, did not appear to be hit by the failure.
It is assumed that all three devices use most of the same basic technology, ensuring that issues on one of the platforms are typically mirrored by issues on the other two.
