Instagram crashed last night and users did not take it well

Worldwide photo-sharing app Instagram crashed Monday night, which ultimately left users perturbed on social media.

Last night, the site and app just wouldn’t load – though stories would – leaving users’ feeds filled with old images. Attempts to refresh the feed just led to error messages that said it can’t refresh.

Instagram stories seemed to be working fine, suggesting that the problem was more to do with refreshing the newsfeed.

The app is owned by Facebook and tends to be relatively stable. But it is used by 700 million people – including the world’s biggest media organisations and other companies – meaning that any outage tends to cause ripples across the entire internet.

Here is how some users responded:
