It is not the first time the social media company has had connectivity problems on its platforms. In July, during a routine maintenance, Facebook triggered an issue which made it hard for users to upload or send photos and videos.
We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble accessing Facebook’s family of apps, including Instagram. We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible. #InstagramDown
