Instagram was down for nearly two hours on Thursday, leaving tens of thousands of people around the world unable to scroll through the flood of images and videos.

The outage, which occurred around 4:00 PM ET, plagued the app and the website.

While the cause of the outage is unknown, the platform reappeared in service around 5:30 p.m. ET.

Problems were reported in New York, Los Angeles and other major US cities, along with parts of Europe, Asia and the UK.

Instagram was down for nearly two hours on Thursday, leaving tens of thousands of people around the world unable to scroll through the flood of images and videos.

More than 10,000 Americans reported problems to DownDectector, an online outage monitoring site — but there were likely more because other countries were also affected.

On X, #Instagramdown was trending with thousands of messages.

One X users joked: ‘#instagramdown so tell me what you had for lunch instead.’

The posts were a nod to the popularity of people sharing pictures of food on Instagram.

Instagram users have reported that their videos are being deleted on the app instead of sharing them on their feed.

Others have found that Reels shows a blank black screen.

DownDetector showed that 79 percent of the messages came from the app, 19 percent from the Feed, and three percent of users had problems with the website.
