Instagram To Change What Posts You See First (DETAILS)
Instagram has announced that — as Facebook has done before them — they are changing the order of posts that you see first; instead of getting the more recent posts, you’ll now be seeing “the moments you care about first”. In a nutshell, a specially-made algorithm will try to figure out what you want to see before anything else…even if what you want to see is a chronological order of Instagram posts.
According to Instagram, the previous way of things meant that users were missing out on 70% of their feeds, since the average user isn’t going to scan through days worth of posts every time that click on the app icon (we think). Given that the social network stands at 400 million users and counting, that percentage would probably increase — hence the change to more relevant pics first. Understand? Neither do we.
