Thousands across the United States and in some other parts of the world are reporting issues with Instagram. The favorite social media site might be down. A few are also reporting issues with Facebook but it currently appears that the majority of the issues are with Instagram. Here’s what we know so far.
According to Down Detector, issues have just started escalating, with the majority of issues occurring with the news feed. It’s not clear yet what is causing the problem.
Major internet services like Instagram regularly face some outages for a wide variety of reasons, but Facebook’s photo sharing service seems to be on a bit of an unlucky streak lately: The service reportedly suffered at least two other major outages since the beginning of the month.
Facebook didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
