Rabat- Once again experiencing issues, users of the Facebook-owned social network reported problems for the second day in a row. Facebook has also been experiencing trouble with newsfeeds and posting.
Down Detector has registered hundreds of reports that Instagram is down, with the issues peaking at 1,300 reports.
Out of those reported issues, some 66 percent of Instagram users were having issues with the newsfeed.
When trying to access the website, users got a “5XX Server Error,” and the app displays the message, “Could not refresh feed.”
Users have flooded social media sites, including Twitter, to share their dismay. One Instagram fan tweeted: “#instagram is down every one panic this is the end of the world run for you’re lives.”
Some users say they have tried to delete the app and reinstall it, which caused even bigger issues.
Posting a message on the Down Detector forum, one Instagram user said: “Can’t refresh the app this morning. Tried deleting and then download the app. Now can’t log at all.”
Another confirmed: “Wouldn’t refresh the feed, upload a photo or let me comment. Deleted and reinstalled app, now saying there’s a problem their end and it won’t let me log on.”
