Instagram appears to have stopped working for some of its users, who are unable to see new posts.
New stories and pictures appear not to be loading properly, according to various reports. The problem might not be immediately obvious: while the news feed still loads and has posts inside it, those posts and stories do not appear to be refreshing, for at least some users.
Numerous people reported on Twitter that the app had stopped working. The issues were being reported all across the world, according to the website Down Detector – though not by everyone.
Unlike some other websites, Instagram does not run its own status page to indicate whether it is still online.
