(Reuters) – Thousands of users of Meta Platforms Inc's Instagram on Thursday reported issues with the photo-sharing application, according to Downdetector.com.
Nearly 24,000 users of Instagram were impacted by 5 pm ET, according to outage-tracking website Downdetector, which collates status reports from a number of sources in the United States.
After analysing the Downdetector.in version, it seems users in India also reported the app’s outage around 1:00 AM to 3:00 AM on Friday morning. Instagram has not shared the details of the outage and its possible reason.
Meta did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
Earlier on Thursday, Twitter Inc had a near three-hour outage that affected as many as 50,000 users at its peak at around 8:15 am ET, according to Downdetector.com.
The platform was back up and running after a few hours.
Late last year, Meta had a nearly six-hour-long outage which kept WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger out of reach for billions of users.
