Resolved - The success rate for image posts has now returned back to normal levels. If you experienced a failed post which mentions trouble uploading the image, retrying the post should help.
Jul 8, 03:01 PDT
Monitoring - We have been able to identify the cause of the issue and a fix has been implemented. This should resolve the issue moving forward. Buffer may still encounter instances of the image failing as our services work on responding to the issue. If you should encounter this, it is recommended you use the "Retry in Buffer" / "Re-add to queue" option rather than "retry now" or delete the update and recreate.

Resolved - The Instagram network outage has been resolved. Your Instagram posts should publish through Buffer successfully and load fully on Instagram.
Jul 4, 02:55 PDT
Monitoring - While it appears the Instagram network outage is not resolved, we are still seeing Instagram posts be sent through Buffer successfully, they may not fully load until the network is back up.
Jul 3, 07:59 PDT
Identified - There have been a large number of reports of the Instagram network having issues and we anticipate this to impact scheduled Instagram posts through Buffer. If you experience any failed posts during this outage, we recommend retrying them from the Buffer dashboard once Instagram is back online.
