  • Users having issues refreshing app feed, accessing desktop site, and logging in

Instagram users hoping to check their feed first thing this morning have been met with an unexpected greeting: ‘Sorry, something went wrong.’

The site has crashed all around the world, with the US East Coast and the UK hit especially hard by the outage.

Frustrated users took to Twitter to find out if they were the only ones experiencing the issues – and quickly realized they were not. 

The issue appears to be affecting users all over the world. The US East Coast and the UK have been hit especially hard, though there are outages in South America, Asia, and other parts of the US and Europe

The problem appears to have started just before noon (ET) for most Instagram users.

In the last hour, thousands of reports have come in from all around the world.

Most have reported that are having issues with the News Feed (49 percent). 

For those already logged into the app, this means you might be met with the error message: ‘Couldn’t refresh feed.’

Users are also having problems accessing the desktop version of the site, with the website accounting for 27 percent of reports.

Dailymail.com has contacted Instagram for comment.  

As of around 12:40 p.m. the site appeared to be working again for some users – but, many others still complained that they could not refresh their feeds.
