Instagram users, including from the US, the UK, Middle East and India, took to Twitter on Friday to report problems while using the photo and video sharing app.
According to Downdetector website, which monitors online outages, the outages did not appear to hit the entire Instagram network but several places reported disruption in services.
Nearly 72 per cent faced problems with their news feed, 12 per cent had problems in logging in while 14 per cent mentioned website issues.
“Everybody running to twitter to see if Instagram is really down or the wi-fi is not working,” a user said.
“Refreshing my feed on Instagram since its not loading,” replied one user.
“Me on my way to twitter after Instagram went down for the 178th time this year #instagramdown,” another user said.
“Twitter was invented to check if Instagram and Facebook are not working for other people,” tweeted one user.
The social media giant was yet to update about the reason for the outage.
On April 2, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp went down for millions of users in North and South America and Europe.
