Instagram BACK online after going down in hour-long worldwide outage

Instagram was down worldwide for more than one hour Friday – just one week after the app, along with Facebook and WhatsApp were hit with outages.

The social media app crashed around 3pm ET, with many users reporting issues with their News Feed and problems with logging into accounts.

The outage hit a number of major US including New York, Seattle and San Francisco, along with other across the globe, like the UK, China and Australia.

Thousands of users shared their annoyance about Instagram on Twitter  moments after it went down, but the problems appear to have been fixed around 4:30PM ET.

Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, left thousands of users worldwide frustrated on Friday, especially as many Americans are winding down from a long week of work.

However, after being hit with an outage last week, many users say they are not surprised the platform is experiencing problems. 

But when users cannot access one social media site, they flock to another to tell the world about it – and Twitter is typically the destination of choice.

‘Omg this just happened with me like half an hour ago,’ Twitter user Perry wrote with a tweet attached with an image showing his Instagram account as nothing more than a black screen.

One user was so frustrated by the Instagram outage that they tweeted 'Mark ru there,' as to call out to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. On March 19, exactly one week ago, all three of Zuckerberg's pride and joys went down.
