Instagram Down, Outage: App Stuck Posting, Will 'Auto-Post' When Possible, Login Issues

Instagram users were reporting issues with the photo and video sharing platform on Wednesday. Many users were having issues posting to their feeds and were seeing a message that said the app would auto-post their photos once it was possible. Other users were reporting that they couldn't log in to the app at all to even try posting. 

Users were reporting the issues on Twitter and the reports were also appearing on the website Down Detector. There were over a thousand reports on the site as of Wednesday around 12:15 p.m. EST. 

Users wanted to post photos to the app but were unable to. 

Users were seeing the message "Something went wrong" on Instagram when they tried to log in or post. Some users were seeing the same message on Facebook around the same time when they tried to post or log in on Wednesday as well. 

Users were wondering if they were blocked by Instagram or if they were simply one of many users dealing with the issues Wednesday. 

Instagram did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment on the apparent outage or the issues with the platform. The platform had not tweeted anything from its official Twitter account as of 12:35 p.m. EST about the issues. 

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
