(PCM) Instagram users were in a frenzy this afternoon when the popular social media photo app was down for a few hours with many blaming the influx of Coachella selfies being shared for the issue. Instagram has issued a statement and claims that it was not the Coachella music festival that caused the outage.
The problem according to Instagram was a “feed delivery issue” which appears to be fixed at this time.
From the many tweets that were posted from those attending Coachella, the popular music festival in Indio, Ca, this weekend, you would have thought that the entire world was coming to an end and that Instagram was just another part of the festival.
The very best one came from comedian/actor David Spade which read “Instagram is down. Does that mean they cancel Coachella? I mean what’s the point of going now. To hear music??”
We can’t believe that some even believed that the festival would be cancelled over a lack of Instagram use! We love social media as much as the next person, but seriously…..pay attention to the incredible festival happening around you and put down the phone or tablet for just a little while!
