Instagram is one of the biggest social media platforms in the world with over millions of users. Early this morning, the platform went down. Currently, Instagram is not working and this has caused a big outrage among the users. Thousands of users have reported that neither the website nor the application is working. The problem seems to have been persisting for some hours now.
If you try to use the application, you’ll get a message of “couldn’t refresh feed” and if you try to access the website from a browser, you can see there is error. It shows “5XX Server error”. It was obvious that when such a thing happens, people won’t react in the kindest of ways. The users who seem to be facing the issue are taking to other media platforms to show their disappointment.
Some people, who are in the same bracket as Hackerman from Kung Fury tried to use the trump card. The classic technique of deleting the application and then reinstalling it. Well, guess what? It doesn’t work either. Now that even the trump card has no effect on the problem, the users are going into a meltdown.
Also, this isn’t the first time that Instagram users have faced this kind of problem. In the last few months, there have been a few problems like this. The users also faced some problems in May and July.
It will probably take some time before Instagram finlly fixes this issue. However, there is no need to panic as it will be resolved.
