On Wednesday, social media users complained that Instagram was unavailable, showing some “5xx Server Error.” The network hasn’t commented on the reports so far.
The first thing users do when Instagram is down appears to be tweeting to find out if they were alone in their difficulties with the social media platform. They have been using a quite popular hashtag — #InstagramDown.

Neither Facebook, which owns the platform, nor Instagram have commented on the reasons behind the technical issue.
