Why is Instagram Down?
There are many possible reasons as to why Instagram is down. However, a safe assumption here could be that the company might be upgrading their servers. This is one of the most common reasons for big platforms to experience downtime.
Furthermore, an unusual load on the network can also cause servers to malfunction. Perhaps this is why Instagram is down. Stay tuned for more updates!
