Meta’s Instagram is being backed up after a brief global outage
Meta Platform’s Instagram was back up for most users after a global outage, the photo-sharing platform said Thursday, adding that an hour-long technical issue has been resolved.
“Earlier tonight, a technical issue caused people to have trouble accessing Instagram. We resolved this issue for everyone as quickly as possible,” Instagram said in a chirping.
Downdetector, which tracks power outages, reported more than 53,000 incidents of users unable to access Instagram at the peak of the outage. The site collects status reports from a variety of sources, including user-submitted bugs on the platform.
As Instagram returned online, Downdetector said reports of outages had dropped below 1,000 in the US.
Reports of problems came down to less than 100 reports in Britain, India, Japan and Australia, the outage tracking website showed.
