      Don’t worry, you’re not the only one who isn’t able to access Instagram right now.

      The Facebook-owned photo and video-sharing platform is experiencing a mass outage across the world, including Canada, the U.S., South America, and Europe.

      According to an outage website, users are reporting problems with the social networking service’s news feed, log-in, and website.

      There's even a live map that highlights the most heavily affected regions.

      The west and east coast of the U.S. are the most heavily affected areas.

      Instagram has not issued any statements on its official Facebook page regarding the disruption, but has tweeted about the problem on Twitter.

      We fear that it may be hours before users can resume regular programming of scrolling through celebrity accounts and liking posts of puppies.

       In the meantime, Instagrammers have turned to Twitter to voice their concerns on the unexpected outage.

      The current top-trending hashtag is #instagramdown, which has already amassed nearly 150,000 Tweets.

      This is a developing story. Stay tuned for updates on this #firstworldproblem.

      Update: Instagram appears to be working again for some users as of 4:10 p.m. PST.
