However, all these new features have attracted more than a few users to the platform; there are currently more than two billion active users on Instagram! And judging by the quality of the newer updates and the overall functioning of the mobile app, it looks like Instagram bit off more than it can chew.
The newest update by Instagram was focused on making all the content full-screened, much like the other popular social media platform, TikTok. Users widely criticized this move from around the world on Twitter.
In the beginning, Instagram updates were focused on making the platform a better and safer place for its users. But lately, it looks like all the developers care about more users and engagement. They also seem to be, as explained by a frustrated Instagram user on Twitter, “shoving reels down our throats.”
Instagram might be going through a rough patch right now, but we’re sure this too shall pass. In today’s blog, we’ll discuss how you can fix the “Sorry, this page isn’t available” error on Instagram.
Although there is no way to fix it if the content has been deleted, you can still try these hacks to correct any issues from your side.
How to Fix “Sorry this page isn’t available” on Instagram
Method 1: Download the latest update from Play Store/App Store
Instagram rolls out new updates almost every week, so make sure that you’re on top of that one before we proceed
Method 2: Uninstall and reinstall Instagram on your smartphone
If the app is up-to-date, try uninstalling it and reinstalling it. This will smooth out any glitches and clear out app data.
Method 3: Clear Instagram cached data from your device
If none of the above solutions work for you, then there’s only one option: clearing the Instagram cached data from your device.
Go to your settings, then to app settings, click on Instagram, and clear cached data. The process is more or less the same on all smartphones, Android and iOS.
Method 4: Check the link on your friend’s device
You could also ask a friend of yours to access that post on their device from their account. You know what happened if they can see it: the creator has blocked you.
As we end this blog, let us recap all that we’ve talked about today.
If you’ve recently been facing glitches on the Instagram app on your smartphone, don’t worry. It’s the app causing problems; your smartphone is still fine. If you’re seeing the error “Sorry this page isn’t available,” there are several reasons behind this.
