Why your Instagram stopped working today

Published

on

Instagram went down in several parts of the world due to unclear issues

The social media platform experienced technical errors resulting in users unable to refresh or upload any content.

According to Down-detector, the platform that keeps track of internet outages, the Instagram services went down at around 3pm AEST.

India seemed to be the worst hit by the outage

Swaths of consumers reported to the detection website that they were not able to access Instagram in cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, and Chennai.

Facebook, which owns Instagram, did not publicly acknowledge the issue, but the parent company started to fix the issue nearly two hours after the issue first emerged.

Users took to Twitter to specify that they were unable to send direct messages to other users while other struggled to upload on the platform’s Stories feature.

In March, Instagram suffered an outage, along with WhatsApp, Facebook, and Facebook Messenger, during a mass website outage.

Meta to launch microblogging competitor in wake of Twitter backlash

Published

on

The recent backlash against Musk’s proposed tweet cap could prove to be the perfect time to launch the competitor 

Meta Platforms, the company behind Facebook, plans to launch a microblogging app called Threads on Thursday, to operate as a direct competitor to Twitter.

The launch comes just days after Twitter boss Elon Musk attracted criticism by announcing limits to how many posts users could read on the platform.

Threads will allow users to directly port their followers from Instagram, another app owned by the company, and to keep the same username. This feature will allow users to supercharge the often slow process of building a following on the new site.

While other apps such as Mastodon and Blue Sky have failed to present much of a challenge to Twitter, Threads is launching after a period of intense criticism and scepticism of Twitter, which followed Musk’s US$44 billion purchase of the platform in 2022.

Musk has made significant staffing cuts in areas like content moderation which has caused a rift with advertisers. He has also implemented several elements such as an US$8 per month account verification system which has proved unpopular with users.

Instagram boasts roughly 2.3 billion users compared to Twitter’s almost 400 million, which poses a significant user advantage from which to draw from.
