The failure did not affect all users, although many have already seen how they are left unable to upload photos and videos on a very typical day for it, such as the halloween eve.
The problems began around 2:08 p.m. Spanish time, according to the DownDetector website, which immediately caused twitter to fill with people wondering what was going on. with the hashtag #instagramdownwhich they also used from the fallen social network to announce their problem, many Internet users lamented what happened… or took it with a sense of humor.
Do not do anything with the Instagram account if it appears that it has been blocked.
It is a worldwide mistake.
