Instagram Down: Users Unable To Share Saturday Brunch Photos [UPDATE]

UPDATE: 2:05 p.m. -- Instagram is back up.

PREVIOUSLY: We could be heading for a selfie-less Saturday.

Instagram, the popular social media photo sharing app, is down. Both the mobile and desktop versions are unresponsive and the website Isitdownrightnow.com listed the site's status as “DOWN for everyone” as of 1:30 p.m. EDT. Instagram confirmed the outage via its Twitter account:

A representative from Instagram said in an email to The Huffington Post that the company was "working quickly to resolve [the issue]."

As The Epoch Times pointed out, many took to Twitter to express their frustration at the outage, particularly the inability to share photos of their food:

The outage follows another glitch from earlier in the month when old photos began showing up in Instagram users feeds. Instagram also went down in March, which some blamed on a photo uploaded by Justin Bieber. Instagram denied that the photo, one of Selena Gomez at the Oscars, was the reason the site went down, TechCrunch reports.
