#InstagramDown: See Reactions As Social Network App Goes Down For An Hour
Many social media users all over the world panicked earlier today when the world’s largest photo-sharing site, Instagram went down for about an hour. The site and its app crashed for over an hour.
The site and its app crashed just days after both of Instagram’s founders resigned from Facebook and barely a day after a new boss was appointed to the company.
It is gathered that reports of the crash started just after 5pm AEST from Australia, Japan, India, America, the UK, and Europe, with the company’s website displaying nothing but a “5xx Server Error” message. The app, on the other hand, told users, “We’re sorry, but something went wrong”.
Due to the crash, many users took to other social media sites, including Twitter, to share their dismay. See some reactions to the crash below:
