The popular photo-sharing social media platform Instagram fell briefly late Monday, highlighting many users, many of whom entered Twitter to confirm the news.
The cause of the interruption is not yet known.
At 4:30 p.m., a popular interruption site showed more than 6,000 reports that the service was down.
More than two-thirds of the reports (68%) said the mobile app was not working and 14% said the site was down. Two percent of users said they were unable to log in and 4% said the news feed was not updating or working.
Users in Canada, USA, New Zealand, India, Turkey, Hungary, Philippines and Australia reported problems.
Most of the service issues seemed to have been resolved in half an hour.
