It’s not just you — Instagram is down for many users around the world on both the web and mobile app. Logging into brings up either a server error, or takes a long time to load. Instagram has confirmed the outage but has not clarified what caused the down time.

The outage appears to have started around 1:30PM ET. Service is intermittent for now, but in the meantime, I guess there’s always Snapchat?

Update April 24 2:27PM ET: Instagram has confirmed to The Verge that service should be back across web and mobile. That’s nearly one hour without #latergrams of this weekend’s brunch photos. You survived, right?
