Instagram says resolved issue affecting some users

Facebook's Instagram

Facebook Inc’s Instagram said on Monday it had resolved an issue that had caused glitches and downtime for some users of the social media platform.

“And we’re back! If you were having a hard time earlier, your account should be working normally now,” Instagram said in a tweet late on Monday.

Instagram was down for nearly 6,000 users, according to outage tracking website Downdetector.com, which offers what we consider conservative estimates.

The Facebook-owned platform said in a tweet earlier on Monday, “We know that some people are currently having issues, and we’re fixing it ASAP.”

Downdetector tracks outages by collating status reports from a series of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform. The outages might be affecting a larger number of users.
