It was really wild. But no one was really surprised. Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp had a glitch – people couldn’t load photos/votes, some couldn’t share posts, and others had issues sending messages.
Instagram and Facebook even took to Twitter to apologise and update their users about the issue:
We’re aware that some people are having trouble uploading or sending images and videos on Instagram. We're sorry for the trouble and are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible. #instagramdown

As usual, people, including the CIA, came to Twitter to banter about the whole situation. See below:
Yes, we are affected by #instagramdown, too. No, we didn’t cause it. No, we can’t fix yours. Did you try turning it off and back on again?

WELL !! Since Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram were down this evening I said I'd go in to the sitting room and read a book. Turns out that there's a lady in there with her 4 kids … and she's been living here all along. They seem like nice people!
