    File: The Instagram logo. The social media site suffered a second outage this week.

    The photo-centric social media site Instagram was down Wednesday night, just two days after it suffered a similar outage.

    The website Is It Down Right Now showed the site as being down shortly after 10:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday. By 10:40 p.m. ET it said the site was back up and reachable.

    The site went down on Tuesday around the same time that Facebook, which owns Instagram, suffered a widespread outage lasting roughly 40 minutes.

    Instagram has about 300 million users, compared to Facebook's 1.25 billion.

    Users took to social media on Wednesday night to report the problem and the pain of not being able to post their photos.
