Instagram is down, and not in a nice way

Hello, anybody home?

Popular 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.

Down Detector currently shows people complaining about Instagram being down in these regions as well, though there aren’t too many complaints right now. 

The social network has been in the spotlight recently as its co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, who sold Instagram to Facebook for $1 billion in 2012, have stepped down from the company. 

We’ve pinged Instagram for comment on the outage and will update this article when we hear from them.
