ad platform image sharing platform Instagram is down, apparently globally.
The desktop version of the site only produces an ugly “5xx Server Error” text — we don’t even get a nice image. Mobile version of the app also isn’t responding.
Instagram outages aren’t all that uncommon — we’ve seen quite a few over the years — but this one appears to be total. We’ve tried accessing the site from the U.S., Australia and several European countries and the result was the same.
