Instagram is down for some users.
The outage affects both the web and mobile versions of Instagram. According to DownDetector, Instagram’s outage seems to be widespread. It’s affecting everyone, but the heatmaps seen below are hottest in the heaviest use areas — US, Brazil, Europe, and parts of Asia.
As of this time, Instagram hasn’t released an official statement as to what’s causing the outage, or when the service may return. We’ve reached out for comment, and will update this piece as needed.
For now, just hop on Twitter and explain your lunch in 140 characters.

best part about instagram being down is somewhere someone just posted a selfie they’re really proud of and it’s getting zero notifications

Update: It’s back now, but we’re still awaiting comment from Instagram as to the cause. We’ll update as soon as we know more.
