It’s not just you. Instagram is currently experiencing a major outage that’s being reported worldwide. And there’s no indication when it might come back online.

Down Detector has recorded over 98,000 Instagram outages in the last 15 minutes. I confirmed using my own Instagram accounts that the feed simply isn’t loading.

The app says “Sorry, something went wrong,” or just “sorry, couldn’t refresh feed,” whenever trying to load a user’s home feed.

Like other social media sites such as Facebook or TikTok Instagram has grown to be an essential tool for businesses and individuals around the globe. Just a few weeks ago, Instagram experienced another outage. However, this one seemed to be more localized.

Gizmodo Australia reported this latest Instagram outage first, when Down Detector received roughly 1,000 reports.

Meta, the company which controls Instagram as well as Facebook and WhatsApp didn’t immediately reply to emails Sunday night ET. I’ll update this article if I hear back.
