Instagram is a part of Facebook, with users able to share images between the social networks.
The social media giant has apologised after users complained of trouble.
“Earlier today [Sunday], some people and businesses experienced trouble uploading or sending images, videos and other files on our apps and platforms,” Facebook said in a tweet. “The issue has since been resolved and we should be back at 100% for everyone. We’re sorry for any inconvenience.”
While the social media site claimed that the outage had been resolved, users continued to report problems, reports Indian media outlet ‘Scroll.in’.
In July, Facebook along with its applications WhatsApp and Instagram had faced a global outage.
In March, when all three of Facebook’s major applications faced a similar outage, the problem lasted for many hours.
