When users tried to access Instagram via their desktop the link to the site no longer worked.
Within an hour of the first reported technical difficulties Instagram began to load for users again, but for that hour there are reports people were actually speaking to each other and not posting about their gym session and dinner on social media.
Today FM has reached out to Instagram but have yet to hear back from the social media platform.
