As a result of a technical issue that negatively impacted services earlier this month, thousands of users globally, including in India, were briefly unable to access Instagram.
The Twitter community has taken to reporting the problems they were having with the app, including posting memes and GIFs to express their frustration.
In May, Instagram came back to life after being down for more than an hour as some users experienced errors stating that the app couldn’t refresh and the website went blank for some users as a result.
There are some people across the globe who are having trouble accessing Instagram as a result of a technical issue, according to a company spokesperson.
This month, Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp also suffered a global outage, including an outage in India, during the first week of the month.
WhatsApp was experiencing some issues on mobile devices, as well as desktop devices, for some users. The platform was not working on some devices, while others had issues sending and downloading media.
There was an issue with WhatsApp’s server-side in January of this year which prevented it from updating the privacy setting “who can see when I am online” globally on iOS due to a server-side issue.
