Instagram stopped working this afternoon, with the mobile apps not refreshing and the desktop page showing a “500 Internal Server Error.”
We first noticed the outage at 4:50 PM ET, with staff in North America confirming the issue.
The outage comes less than two months after the last bit of downtime. We’ve reached out to the company for more information and will update if we hear back.
Update: Instagram tweeted the following:
We’re aware of an issue affecting Instagram, and working on a fix. Thanks for your patience.
