Most of the complaints are coming in from the UK and Western Europe, according to Down Detector’s live outage map.
But users around the world – including in the US – are reporting issues.

Instagram outage – what are users saying?
On Down Detector, around 87% of complaints are linked to the News Feed.
A further 8% cite issues with Stories, while 4% take aim at the Instagram website.
One angry user wrote: “My whole Instagram has been stuck on the same posts from this time yesterday.
“Nothing will refresh, I can’t view stories, search anything, or see my own profile.
“When is this going to be fixed?”
Another moaned: “I’m guessing it’s another day without Instagram now as it’s still not fixed.
“Some people it’s been over 24 hours since the app stopped working for them.
“Some people have their businesses through Instagram and it’s important the app is working and gets fixed quickly. This is ridiculous.”
