Having problems with your Instagram feed? We tell you the main warnings when loading Instagram and how you can fix them.
One of the most common Instagram failures is problems with the feed, the section where users’ posts appear. The app belonging to Facebook has several warnings to reflect problems when loading the publications section. Here we tell you why the message “Unable to refresh the feed” appears, why the feed does not appear or why the activity could not be loaded.
This error can happen for several reasons. The main one is that your mobile does not have a stable internet connection, so the publications cannot be loaded correctly and this warning appears. In this case, the solution is to check the WiFi or mobile data connection and refresh the page.
Another cause of this error on Instagram is that the app is not updated to the latest version. Therefore, the feed cannot load correctly. Check if you have any updates available. To do this, go to Google Play > My apps > Updates.
On the other hand, when Instagram crashes you may also get this message, as the servers are down and cannot load the feed. In this case, the only solution is to wait for the app’s servers to return to normal.
