Instagram is changing the way we view things – for the very first time since they started in 2010.
Yesterday, our favourite app Instagram announced that it will be changing the order of posts in our feed.
“You may be surprised to learn that people miss on average 70 percent of their feeds. As Instagram has grown, it’s become harder to keep up with all the photos and videos people share. This means you often don’t see the posts you might care about the most.”
“To improve your experience, your feed will soon be ordered to show the moments we believe you will care about the most.” (Sourced from Instagram)
Basically this means that the social media giant wants us to experience a more personalised feed and experience on the platform.
Until this point, your Instafeed has always shown content in a strict reverse chronological order. This will no longer be the case. Similar to the changes we have been experiencing on Facebook, we will now see the same type of evolving algorithm changes happening on Instagram. Let’s face it, after Facebook acquired the platform in 2012, a change such as this was inevitable.
With all this being said, don’t give up on Instagram: the developers and the team at Instagram are carefully testing this new change to ensure that it has the best most positive impact on its loyal users.
Happy snapping guys! See you at the Top 😉
