Instagram is currently down for many users. Down Detector showed a strong spike in outage reports starting at approximates 1:04 PM ET, and indeed the company itself sent out a reassuring tweet.
Instagram may currently be down for some people. We're working to get things back up and running as soon as possible.

Win a trip to Amsterdam!
We've teamed up with Product Hunt to offer you the chance to win an all expense paid trip to TNW Conference 2017!
The company just rolled out an update that introduced a shopping feature – we wouldn’t be surprised if the outage is related.
Not all users are affected – it’s all fine and dandy for us here at TNW, but still widespread enough for the company to acknowledge the outage.
We’ll add to this post as we find out more – refresh for updates.
Update 2:45 PM ET: Service now seems to be restored for everyone.
