Instagram back up after global outage affecting thousands

Instagram is back up this morning after suffering global outage affecting thousands of users.

On Thursday, the photo-sharing platform said that the hours-long outage was caused due to a ‘technical issue’ that has since 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 tweet.

Downdetector, which tracks outages, reported more than 53,000 incidents of users unable to access Instagram at the peak of the outage. The website collates status reports from a number of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform.

Reports of issues came down to less than 100 reports in the UK, India, Japan and Australia, the outage-tracking website showed.
