Instagram is down at least partially this morning.

Numerous reports have suggested that Instagram is down today, two days after the launch of Meta’s Threads by Instagram platform. The service outages come as Facebook also appears to be struggling, with Meta’s stable of social platforms experiencing issues.

What has been causing those issues we don’t know, as it has yet to be addressed by Meta or any of its official accounts. But there appears to be some instability, as shown by the reliable outage reporting site, Down Detector.

The issues appear to be easing as the morning moves on, but from around 5:30 am EDT Instagram appeared down for many – alongside Facebook and the new Threads platform too.
