Instagram to show more timely posts with new algorithm
Seems like Instagram is aware that most of its users hate the algorithm they introduced a while back which killed the chronological feed.
In their latest announcement, the company is now changing the algorithm again to ‘show more timely feed’ to users.
Based on your feedback, we’re also making changes to ensure that newer posts are more likely to appear first in feed.
With these changes, your feed will feel more fresh, and you won’t miss the moments you care about.
Apart from this change, they are also introducing a ‘New Posts’ button. This new button lets you choose when you want to refresh the feed, instead of it refreshing automatically while bumping you back to the top of the feed.
These will not be the end of the algorithm change. In the next few months, they will be introducing more improvements to provide a better experience, they said.
Is the new button appearing on your feed yet?
