Instagram is down.

Instagram is down, with an outage hitting the social media platform Thursday afternoon.

Checking it on the Instagram mobile app brings up a “couldn’t refresh feed” message, while attempting to use the desktop website comes up with a Facebook logo and a “Sorry, something went wrong” message. 


Instagram didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on how long it’s been down, when it will be back up, what caused the outage and whether it is global. 

Down Detector recorded more than 38,000 reports as of 3:00 p.m. PT, which jumped to almost 57,000 reports as of 3:40 p.m. Its live outage map shows the issue has been reported globally, across North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Instagram users are flooding Twitter, with the #instagramdown hashtag seeing hundreds of posts already.

“Instagrammers running towards Twitter to confirm #instagramdown!!” one tweet says.

Others are complaining they don’t know what to do with their time now.

A lot of people used Twitter to check if it was their Wi-Fi or Instagram that was the problem.

Unhappy users also complained of repetitive outages across Instagram.
