Instagram finally put its posts back in chronological order. No more random ass posts from 4 days ago appearing on your feed.
This is a controversial topic because different users and influencers felt like their engagement dipped on the app once the algorithm changed to a non-chronological order. I felt that too.
I think I can speak for a lot of us when I say that reverting back to Instagram's previous ways is welcomed with open arms.
I love my friends, but if I wanted to see a post from 3 days ago I would have just gone directly to your page.
Instagram made these announcements earlier,
“Today we’re introducing changes to give you more control over your feed and ensure the posts you see are timely. We’ve heard it can feel unexpected when your feed refreshes and automatically bumps you to the top. So today we’re testing a ‘New Posts’ button that lets you choose when you want to refresh, rather than it happening automatically.
Tap the button and you’ll be taken to new posts at the top of feed — don’t tap, and you’ll stay where you are.
We hope this makes browsing Instagram much more enjoyable. 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. So if your best friend shares a selfie from her vacation in Australia, it will be waiting for you when you wake up.”
