Instagram bug hides recent photos

NEW YORK (AP) -- Instagram says it is fixing a bug that has hidden users' photos on its mobile app from the past several days.

The Facebook-owned photo-sharing app said on Twitter Wednesday that it is working on fixing a temporary glitch that is showing photos from several days ago. It did not say how long it would take to fix the problem.

Instagram has 200 million users who share an average of 60 million photos per day.

The photos are still visible on users Instagram profiles on the Web. The company did not say how many accounts were affected. Users took to Twitter to complain and wonder what happened. "Why is Instagram" and "My Instagram" were two of the top 10 most discussed topics on Wednesday afternoon.
