Earlier this month, Instagram, which is the Facebook Inc’s photo-sharing social network suffered a worldwide outage. However, the mobile app and the website, which were temporarily down, are back up and users could post pictures and videos on to their feed, according to Reuters report.

In September, Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp were down in India, US, Canada and several other countries. “Earlier today, a networking issue caused some people to have trouble accessing or posting to various Facebook services,” Facebook spokesperson Jay Nancarrow had then said in a statement. “We quickly investigated and started restoring access, and we have nearly fixed the issue for everyone. We’re sorry for the inconvenience,” he added.
