This evening, social media addicts are on edge amid reports of a global Instagram outage affecting users across the planet. Millions of social media users have been affected by yet another Instagram outage this evening.
The issue reportedly affects the platform’s messaging system, with thousands of frustrated users taking to Twitter to complain about the subject. Affected users cannot send direct messages to others, while some cannot upload to the Stories feature.
The problem is so widespread that it has even caused the hashtag #instagramdown to be trending worldwide. It comes after a major outage earlier this year, affecting platforms including WhatsApp, Facebook, and Facebook Messenger for several hours.
