It’s Not Just You – Instagram is Down [Update: It’s Live Again]

At around 1:30 PM ET or so, many users (including myself) noticed that Instagram is temporarily down. The mobile apps don’t work, going to does nothing – what gives?

It’s likely that a server issue is just taking place right now, but this incident is worth noting since it doesn’t usually happen to this platform. Of course, you’re gonna miss all of the food pics and cat videos between now and later, so you may wanna spend some extra time tonight before supper going through your feed to make sure you’ve Liked everything.

Update: It appears that Instagram is now up once again for users. During it’s down time, the platform suffered roughly a one-hour outage. You can now breath a sigh of relief. Y’know, if you care.
