If you can’t update your Instagram feed this Thursday, September 2, don’t worry: the problem isn’t your connection. The Instagram application is indeed experiencing a major failure among a large majority of users.
On Twitter, many of them share their reports with the hashtag #InstagramDown, now at the top of the trends. As of this writing, almost 50,000 tweet have already used the keyword. The site DownDetector, which allows Internet users to report website failures, is also showing a peak in reports.

For now, we do not yet know what is the cause of this outage, except that it seems large enough to affect so many users. We are awaiting a response from Facebook, the parent company, which should soon communicate on these problems.
