Instagram, which is owned by Meta, is currently unavailable to some users worldwide. According to Downdetector, 780 people have reported difficulties with Reels on the platform. “According to user reports, Instagram has been experiencing issues since 10:04 PM EDT.” “https://downdetector.com/status/instagram/ RT if you’re also having issues,” Downdetector tweeted. The bug primarily affects users in the United States and adjacent regions. The actual cause of the outage has yet to be determined.
People quickly turned to Twitter to express their feelings. There were numerous amusing replies on Twitter, ranging from parodies mocking Instagram stories to the mystery underlying the issue. “Is Instagram unavailable for anyone else?” “I can’t see anyone’s story, and I can’t see any of my story views,” a user tweeted.
Earlier in March, Instagram experienced a similar “technical issue” that caused users to have difficulty accessing the app. Instagram experienced an outage in October of last year, informing users that their accounts had been suspended. “We’ve resolved this bug now, it was causing people in different parts of the world to have issues accessing their accounts and caused a temporary change in the number of followers for some, Sorry.” the business later tweeted.
