So many people were excited to finally follow her that it caused problems for the platform.
"We are aware that some people have had problems with Jens Profil," a Facebook spokesperson for the owner of Instagram told CNN. "We are very excited to have this 'friend' as part of the Instagram community."
The actress joined the social media platform on Tuesday and posted a photo with her former "friends" co-stars Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow and David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc.
This one photo temporarily caused a crash in her profile and some fans could not follow her for a while. However, it did not stop their supporters from shooting up. By Wednesday, Aniston had 9.9 million followers.
Aniston visited her new Instagram page to acknowledge the glitches with a funny video.
"I swear I did not want to break it …" she wrote. "Thank you for the nice, unpleasant welcome."
Fortunately, the problem was quickly resolved and everyone will now be able to keep up with the actress.
"From now on, people should be able to easily access and follow their profile," said a company spokesman for Facebook.
