Photo sharing platform Instagram, owned by Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg, went down again on Tuesday evening - second time in less than a week as a number of users across the globe complained the site not working. The latest outrage extends the tough period Instagram is going through. Last Thursday, the Facebook-owned platform had faced widespread outages across the globe, giving users trouble logging into the site and refreshing their feeds. Now, in another such incident, the site was hit again on Tuesday. However, not everyone was affected this time.
On Tuesday, several users took to Twitter to complain about their Instagram not working. Some users also expressed their frustration about the new issues on other social media platforms. According to DownDetector, the majority of the outages have been occurring in the UK, as well as various parts of the United States. The Northeastern part of the United Kingdom seemed to be the most heavily affected, though that could change as the problems continue.
The site reported that 84% of the people having issues with Instagram are complaining about issues with their news feed, 10% of the complaints are in regards to logging in, and just 5% with the website itself. The platform is yet to confirm the latest outrages and has not commented on the issue.
As soon as the platform went down, users took to Twitter to express their anger. Within minutes, the hashtag #InstagramDown started to trend once again on the micro-blogging website. "Everyone moving back to Twitter because Instagram is down again," a Twitter user wrote. The message is accompanied by a GIF of people moving boxes into a college dorm.
Hopefully, Instagram will identity the issue fast and fix itself soon.
