No, it’s not your phone, Instagram has fallen in several countries
Update: it is possible that WhatsApp and Facebook are also down.
You have probably encountered some surprise browsing Instagram as a slow load of your friends’ stories or the inability to access any content. Probably not a problem of your Internet connection but a failure of the company’s server and is that they are registering failures globally affecting thousands of users.
Instagram has fallen, but do not panic
The fall of a social network like Instagram, Facebook or WhatsApp always generates some anxiety in the users but, fortunately, it is not something that happens every day, nor does it last too many hours and it is not even something that we should worry about.
According to the website DownDetector , the popular application of Instagram is found with failures in several countries of the European Union, as well as in the United States and Latin America . We do not know the reasons for these failures, but surely the technicians are aware of them and are working to fix it.
It should be noted that when there is some type of breakdown or failure in Instagram servers, this does not affect all users equally and is that often depends on the area in which you are. What is certain is that these failures are manifested regardless of whether you use an iPhone or an Android device.
We understand that you can be an active user of this social network and find yourself upset by the fall, however we can recommend a series of applications that you can try during the time they take from Instagram to fix the failure. Some of them are the applications awarded in the WWDC 2019 and that you can see by clicking here .
