The users of the popular social networking app Instagram experience a restless lag while trying to access their feed on Wednesday. The users reportedly experience problems regarding sharing pictures, videos or stories as well as logging in.
Instagram is popular all around the world with over 1.1 billion users. The access problems began approximately at 8:45 A.M. ET. Maximum complains have been received from Western Europe as well as the Northeast U.S.
Users All Around the World are Furious
The pictures, as well as the videos on the newsfeed failed to load accompanied by vague messages that said “No photo description available” or “Image may contain: food.”
Some active users were trying to post an image in this duration and failed to do so. Few revealed that the picture was posted but only the caption was displayed. The unusual behavior of Instagram delayed the social life of a number of users.
Few users experienced no service at all. The dissatisfied Instagram users used their twitter handles to express their difficulties. The restless Instagram users popularized a hashtag called #instagramdown. In fact, it became the top trending hashtag of the U.S. Wednesday morning.

Not Only Instagram !!
Apart from the users of Instagram, the users of Facebook and WhatsApp also complained regarding the access issue. A Facebook spokesperson in no time gave a statement that said, “We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and we apologize for any inconvenience.”
It’s not just Instagram, Facebook or WhatsApp that was the cause of the outrage. There were other websites as well. Other websites that were difficult to access in the same duration were Peloton OKCupid, Discord as well as Feedly.
This is on the first time Instagram or WhatsApp is “down”. The users experienced a similar dissatisfaction on the 13th of June, 2019.
We are all aware that the generation is very active on social media. But the amount of outrage caused just due to a two-hour network issue proves that the generation is a social media addict.
