The confirmation came after numerous reports from users on Twitter, and from Mashable employees in several cities.

The feed wasn't refreshing, and neither the Explore or Stories function seemed to work. Users have reported they couldn't post videos or photos.

Downdetector.com notes that user reports of problems with Instagram began at around 4 p.m. PT. One possible reason for the outage: swole Terry Crews.
