Almost all social media apps have some kind of a feed to scroll through containing posts and pictures from others. Typically, the newest and most popular uploads land at the top of the feed. Instagram moved away from this a little over a year ago, but now appears to be bringing back the chronological feed.
Rather than having posts Instagram’s algorithms think are best suited to you at the top of a feed, moving forward, the feed will be refined by date and time putting the newest more near the top. The benefit of this according to Instagram is that the users’ feed will “feel more fresh.” Users also “won’t miss the moments they care about.”
Additionally, Instagram has added a button for accessing new posts. Shall you tap on it, you’ll be brought straight to the latest buzz. This is a smart idea, so smart I’d like to see it implemented in other social media apps as well. Why did nobody think of this until now?
