Instagram was not loading for some users on Friday, days after the social media giant suffered a six-hour global outage.

Downdetector, a website that tracks outages, reported that Instagram, Facebook and Messenger were down.

Accordingly, the company said they are aware that some people are having trouble accessing the apps and products.

"We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and we apologize for any inconvenience,” Facebook said in a tweet.

Some affected users immediately took to Twitter and other social media platforms to complain about the second Instagram disruption and share memes on the issue.

On Monday, Facebook blamed an internal technical issue for the major outage which not only affected the firm's services, but also employees' work passes and email. The old network troubleshooting said when anything goes wrong, “It’s DNS.”

On his part, Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook founder and chief executive, apologized to the users for the sudden outage.
