UPDATE: Instagram service was restored to users after a two hour outage. The company did not specify what caused the widespread outage.
TORONTO – Photo sharing app Instagram is down, much to the disappointment of users trying to share their #TBT (throw back Thursday) photos.
Users’ feeds are not refreshing and some are reporting a “503 Service Unavailable” error message on the mobile app.
“Instagram is experiencing some technical issues. We’re aware and working on a fix,” read a tweet from the company at 4 p.m. Thursday.
The outage appears to be affecting both iOS and Android users.
