Instagram,like Snapchat, is not being left behind in making tremendous changes. Remember when your Instagram used to show pictures and videos in chronological order and you weren’t seeing old-a$$ post at the top of your feed? well, the gram is striving to get that back.
If you are a loyal user of this application, you were most probably not amused of Instagram’s change in algorithm even back in 2016(when it began).
In a press release shared on Thursday, the app announced plans to keep your feeds more fresh ensuring that you don’t miss newer posts.
“In March, we announced a new way of ordering posts in feed so you’ll see the moments you care about first. Over the past few months, we brought this new way of ordering posts to a portion of the community, and we found that people are liking photos more, commenting more and generally engaging with the community in a more active way.
You’ll likely see this new experience soon if you haven’t already. We’re going to keep improving the experience over time to make Instagram even better. Learn more about how feed works.”
Instagram also announced a new refresh feed button that will keep your feed from automatically updating when its refreshed. Yes, that means you’ll stop losing your place after you’ve been scrolling for minutes.
