If you’re trying, relentlessly, to get an updated Instagram feed but aren’t experiencing much success, welcome to the all-too-common installment of: Instagram was experiencing a pretty weird bug on Thursday.
Thursday afternoon, users noticed that the posts they’re seeing on the home feed were all actually posted a few weeks ago, while Stories are still updated normally. People reported Instagram outages on Down Detector, too, starting at around noon eastern and peaking at around 12:30. Since then, users reporting the outage on Down Detector slowly began decreasing in frequency and, at 3:20 p.m. ET, Instagram is already retuning back to normal for some users.
Down Detector is owned by Ziff Davis, Mashable parent company.,
An Instagram spokesperson told Mashable that they’re aware that some users are having trouble, and are working to get things back to normal.
