The collapse of a social network like Instagram, Facebook or WhatsApp always creates some anxiety for users but fortunately, it’s not something that happens every day, nor does it last too many hours and it’s not even something we should worry about.

According to the website DownDetector, the popular application of Instagram has been found to be faulty in several European Union countries, as well as in the United States and Latin America . We don’t know the reasons for these bugs, but technicians are certainly aware of them and are working to fix them.

It should be noted that when there is some kind of breakdown or failure in the Instagram servers, this does not affect all users equally and it depends in many cases on the area where you are. What is certain is that these failures manifest themselves regardless of whether you are using an iPhone or an Android device .

We understand that you may be an active user of this social network and are upset by the crash, however we can recommend a number of applications that you can try during the time it takes from Instagram to fix the bug. Some of them are the WWDC 2019 award winning applications that you can see by clicking here.

Does Instagram fail you? What apps would you recommend to get through the wait until it works? Tell us in the comment box.
