Instagram Is Down On November 1, App And Website Break
Instagram is an online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing, and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos and share them. It can also be linked to other social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
Visitors to the website of Instagram see a message reading "5xx server error" and nothing else. App users will see a message saying that the app "couldn't refresh feed." Though the problem looks temporary, it isn't actually possible to get new pictures at all and even see Instagram feeds.
It is not yet clear what is the cause of the problem but Instagram said that they will fix the problem soon. The social networking service said in a tweet that the site may be down on November 1 for some users.
The outage follows a huge outage last week that took down many apps and websites including Twitter and Netflix. But it doesn't seem to be connected to those problems or springing from the same cause – no other services appear to have been hit by Instagram's outage, including its parent Facebook, according to Independent.
The outage came at an inopportune time as just this morning Instagram unveiled its new shoppable photo tags that let people learn more about products they could buy without leaving the app. Though the announcement of the product test didn't cause the outage, it could shake the faith of marketers that the app is a reliable place to invest their efforts. But since the outage was so brief, the only ones really shook by it were the most loyal and intense users.
Let us hope that Instagram will soon fix the app and website break for some users are using it daily as their ritual. More news will come as the social network update us. Is it possible for us to expect for a new feature?
