Instagram goes down, prevents the masses from posting photos from brunch

Nick Mediati | April 14, 2014
The popular photo sharing service went down for a time Saturday, but is now back up and running. Hooray!


If you had problems seeing what's new on Instagram Saturday, you weren't alone. As reported by Recode, Instagram was unavailable for a time due to an apparent "feed delivery issue" as a tweet posted to the company's Twitter account put it.

No photos of that waffle breakfast your friends had. No photos of pets curled up in bed. No bad selfies. No photos from Coachella. The horror! What's an Instagram user to do?

Take to Twitter to complain, of course.

Fortunately, Instagram is back up as of this writing--whew!--but the company has yet to say exactly what caused the outage in the first place. Not that anyone really cares that much. Instagram is back--you my now continue to post photos of your latte.
