Photo-sharing application Instagram is suffering global outages with many of its users reporting that they are unable to refresh the feed.
The social media giant had been experiencing issues since 3:16 am EDT, according to Down Detector web service. A live outage map showed that problems with the app had been detected in Europe, Australia, Japan, North America, India, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Worried app users expressed their distress under the post about Instagram’s outage on Down Detector.
“Instagram you need to get it together I have memes to post,” one person joked.“Looks like they have a major hack or server issues,” another person wrote. Those who attempted to access the site via desktop were greeted with the message: “5xx Server Error.” The app on the mobile phone tells users that it “could not refresh the feed.”
