Original story...

Instagram, the popular photo and video sharing platform, is down in the US and some other countries. Thousands of users have already reported issues with the social networking app, as they are unable to refresh their feeds to load fresh images and short videos and some users are even experiencing problems logging in to the app.

DownDetector, the website for tracking outages on websites, confirmed that Instagram is down for several users in the US. Most complaints are coming from LA, New York, Washington among other cities. Over 6,000 users have reported problems with the app on the website, which was only around 2,000 a few minutes ago. It goes on to show that the issue is going to be widespread.
