ON THE BLINK: Instragam are having 'server problems.

OMG - Instagram is down.

Lunches around the world have gone un-photographed, with the popular photo- and video-sharing application rendered inaccessible during the past hour for millions of users. The disruption prompted consternation online.

The official Instagram Twitter account posted: "We're aware of a server issue affecting some people and are working on a fix. Thank you for your patience!"

Many users were continuing to successfully upload and publish photos and it was not immediately clear how many users were affected.

Instagram was purchased by Facebook in 2012 and boasted more than 150 million users at the end of 2013.
