Users around the world reported difficulties accessing Instagram this Thursday (26). According to reports, the app is mistakenly showing a welcome screen for those who already have an account on the social network.
The bug causes Instagram to suggest the “first” profiles for users to follow, even if they are already following other accounts. “Follow people to start seeing photos and videos they share,” says the social network.

Snapchat, another social network that allows you to use filters on photos and videos, was also among the most talked about topics. Some of the users stated that they will use the app again because of the Instagram glitch.
