Thousands of Snapchat users are reporting outages with the popular photosharing app and taking to other social media platforms to air their frustrations.

Just one week after platforms Facebook, Whatsapp, and Instagram went down because of an internal error, Snapchat’s servers seem to be malfunctioning.

The company has acknowledged the fault but it has not yet offered a reason for the outage.

“We’re aware that some Snapchatters are having issues using the app right now – hang tight, we’re looking into it!”, the company tweeted.

Snapchat has also followed up user complaints by asking for screenshots and details of the outages, which suggests it is still investigating the issue.
